Friday Ramblings: Pause & Reflect

“I think your work is very “clean”…your images are “crisp”, “clear”, and full of awesomeness!!! Timeless, too. I don’t see you jumping on any band wagons (i.e. latest editing fads, etc). You do your own thing and are confident in your work.”

I received this wonderful compliment from a fellow photographer yesterday and was absolutely grateful!  You see, I spent the first year of my career trying to be someone that I’m not and hated it.  I felt so lost and confused.  I spent last year trying to find my photographic voice and still be able to remain ME, but still found myself a little lost.  You know how sometimes you have something on the tip of your tongue but it just won’t come out?  That’s how I felt about my photography…like I knew what and who I wanted to be but just couldn’t bring it to life.  I have always considered myself a bit of a rebel.  I HATE RULES!  Well, photography is chocked full of them and I really struggled with trying to follow all of these “rules”.  Well, I have finally learned all of the rules and have decided that this year, my 3rd year,  I’m going back to breaking rules and marching to the beat of my own drum!  I’ve never given one thought to what others thought of me…why was I caring so much now?

I came across the above quote and felt like it was talking straight to me!  So, I have paused and reflected and can’t wait for 2013 and all that it has for me!  I’m going to do my own thing and continue to step out of my comfort zone.  My images may not always come out the way I wanted but at least I know I tried something new and wasn’t trying to be something that I’m not!

I hope you take time to pause, reflect and figure out who you want to be this year and go for it!
