How do you Grow?

How do I grow as a photographer...You need to practice your craft A LOT. You need to love the process because it can become overwhelming with information, it can become exhausted, it can be hopeless. You don't grow without failing and without making mistakes but with that you will grow and become a lot better than when you first started.

The only option once you take that first step of starting is to Become Better.

In photography there are so many styles and so much to photograph but immediately I learned that each style requires a different technique, a different lens, different lighting, different setting, and a different story to tell. In order to find what genre of photography fits better you need to photograph everything you want, then you'll find out what is it that you enjoy the most and get better at photographing that genre.

There is a first step to everything, if you really want it, Take It.

Enjoy the Process

My first photo-shoot...it was fun, challenging, frustrating but mostly a life changing experience that I will never forget. I always loved photography but I didn't know what I was getting myself into. I've learned to love it even more because photography is more than just a hobby, it's an art, it's a lifestyle, it's putting your creative side out there and is thinking outside the box all the time. You want to be unique and tell a beautiful story that everyone will fall in love with, just like you fall in love with every photo you take.

My first professional photo-shoot was taking photos of these really cool-professional looking metal business cards for MetalBusinessCards.com

It was fun because I was able to design cool concept ideas for each card, oh boy but more than a 100 cards was a bit challenging, I loved it though. Each card had to tell a different story as each card was uniquely made and served a specific purpose. It was a project I decided to focus on to learn my camera and lighting techniques.

Product photography was an eye opener because it taught me how important Photo Composition is. Now I treat everything I shoot as a product because everything requires a different lighting technique, it requires focusing on the product or person to tell its unique story.

As I continue to learn and grow, I continue to love more what I do. I hope that you follow my journey into photography and remember that everything you once dreamed of can become a reality if you are willing to go through the process.
