Earlier today I was viewing the discussion board for my photography class online and I came across a guy who couldn’t get over the hump in terms of picking up his camera and shooting a complete stranger. He at least has ambitions to become a better photographer otherwise he wouldn’t have enrolled in this course. I suggested a couple things to him and if you find yourself in the same predicament of various sorts take heed:
1. Just Do It // You have to stop worrying about what others may think of you. You have to realize that whatever you are trying to pursue that your progression in your desired field is more important that what others have to say or think. Just start and don’t look back. You’ll find yourself more comfortable with doing exactly what it is you do.
2. The More Comfortable You In Your Skin The Less People Will Judge You // Perspective is everything and you only get one chance to make a 1st impression so it must be done right. The more comfortable you are in your skin the less judgmental you think people will be towards you. There’s only one you; embrace it and do you!
3. Say F It! // You have to realize that you want to become a better photographer more than you can care about what people have to say. Honestly, and excuse my French, say F it! Who cares what people think? This is what I’m passionate about and this is what I’m going to pursue. Remember, those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
4. Watch Video // Lastly, and most importantly, you should search for inspiration and motivation daily for its what we believe that imprisons our thoughts and our mind. This video is a great source of inspiration especially for someone who finds it hard to get over the hump.
