Want to be a better photographer?

Whatever that we wish to do in life, there is surely a desire to be better at it. But i believe that if you enjoy what you are doing, you wouldn’t think too much about it and just keep on doing it.Somehow you will get better.

To be more specific if let say you run out of ideas on what to do. I found a useful link from Petapixel. One of my favourite from the list of tips is to bring the camera everywhere you go. Generally if you have a mobile phone, you already have that one checked.

But smartphones can be limiting too, like the part when my memory is always full. So it has been my habit for 2017 to bring my camera wherever i go. Usually i will carry at least one film and one digital. Even when i go to work. I would normally bring my Olympus XA and my Canon G16.You’ll never know when something awesome comes up.

Everyday i try to remind myself to find something to shoot and to not take things for granted. Sometimes in my mind i would feel like it is just another normal scene and there is nothing much to share . But a lot of new photographers like me would feel the same. Sometimes we run out of things to photograph. That is when i will keep telling myself to just take a picture and view it only a few days later. Look at it in a positive way and see how does it make you feel? Photography is all about memories and that is why i love it. They value more as time goes by. I am talking about personal value. Even at that point of time when there might be no value at all, i keep telling myself there must be some value in the future. Because you were there at that point of time and as you look at the photo, you are actually looking at a piece of history in your life. It may be just another day, just another sunset, just another picture of a cloud or just another picture of a neighbour’s cat. But that point represents a certain period of time where you were at a certain stage in your life. As i am writing this, i am reminding myself why it matters to continue with this habit. If god allows it, i would do my best to take a photo everyday.clouds1
