This year one of the things I said I wanted to do was take ordinary things and learn to take awesome still life photos. I love photography, I love creating a unique vibe with ordinary things and I love the process of learning. Believe it or not Instagram has helped. So much inspiration can be found just scrolling through all the goodness it has to offer. I find that just learning a tidbit or two everyday helps me stay inspired and not feel too overwhelmed. I’ve strayed a bit from using my DSLR because my iphone and all its wonderful apps have take over.
Editing photos on the many apps that I have has begun to be a completely fun and fast process for me and with how fast my life moves most days it’s exactly what I need. My plan is to share some easy photo tips and ideas I’ve come across while playing around in these apps soon. Crossing my fingers because getting my ideas into some viewable format is going to be quite the feat but I think I’m up for it!
In the midst of creating some new creative content to share I began to think of all the things that stop me from doing the things I want to do to move forward. It can be draining when you think about the things you don’t have but I’m hoping to push past that as much as possible. One of the biggest things I’ve had to learn along with discovering that I am capable as an artist is that you have to work with what you have. I just wanted to share some encouraging words that can be hard to hear especially with all the levels of success that we tend to see on the internet. If you are trying to get somewhere, and you may not even know where that is yet, then just start with what you have and keep going...
