Hello my fellow readers,
In the past few days, I have been occupied with one thing: get a new post up. I’ve been editing and editing non-stop, and then came along the writing portion of the article. Usually, if I am hit by inspiration, I begin to write right away, as if my fingers are burning and I need to type as fast as I can. However, these past several days, I could not come up with anything solid for the blog post that I would honestly be glad to put up on the Internet. I felt as if everything I wrote did not make any sense, which was getting me frustrated because it was not meeting the deadline for my post.
As I’ve shared with you in the past posts, I have always been and will be aiming for outstanding content, and it is difficult to achieve when there is no muse or inspiration coming to you. I’ve decided to title this post “Perspective” because recently, I have been reviewing and researching fashion week street style photography, photographers, and various-famous or not-published photographers. I’ve been trying to understand how to achieve a creative yet still beautiful approach to my photos, so that my perspective, in contrast to other fashion bloggers out there, will be different.
To say that my photographer, Vanessa, and I have achieved our vision is quite an understatement, however, we have been managing to try. Our perspective may not be astonishing to some, yet to us, it was a grandiose improvement in comparison to our earlier posts. We are still learning, attempting to acquire new skills and improve our own, yet we have begun somewhere.
Just as in photography, there are various perspectives to look at life. One, for instance, may look at the famous example of the glass of water and state that it’s “half-full,” meanwhile others might look at the same glass of water and state that it’s “half-empty.” Truly, you are the one choosing how you prefer to look at things in life. If you choose to look at various obstacles as challenging steps to your goals, then at the end of the road, those obstacles won’t seem as obstacles. Yet, if you decide to look at issues as something negative, then it might get in your way of achieving your goals.
Vanessa and I do not have a lot of money to invest in great lenses or expensive equipment, and like certain individuals say, “we’re rolling on the budget,” however, we are still “rolling,” and we have decided to look at this minor challenge as a step that just happened to be along the way to our goal: an achievement of perfect shots. We are working toward our goals, saving up money, yet we will always be rolling disregarding various obstacles. So, decide how you look at challenges in life because as the famous Bill Cunningham has once stated himself, “You cannot interrupt life with that nonsense.”
