What Inspires You
Before we get into the juicy stuff, I really want you to write down a few things. So grab a notebook and a pen, grab a favorite drink, and let's get to work.
"THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO SUCCEED. IT'S CALLED HARD WORK."
I want you to answer the following questions. As fully as you can. Try writing AT LEAST a paragraph per question. Of course, this is just for you but you are welcome to share with others (like on your Instagram account). But it's up to you.
- Why do you pick up the camera?
- What is one goal you have with your photography?
- What do you like to photograph?
- What inspires you to pick up the camera (might be similar to number one)
- Where do you want to go with your photography?
I feel like these are all very important to answer and understand what motivates you to pick up the camera.
For me, I am motivated by capturing memories. I am inspired by the light, if there's pretty light, I am so inspired! I am also inspired to make 'bad' light work for me. I want to capture my son growing up and that is my main drive to pick up the camera. I love to capture real life, everyday moments. Now, I don't want you to copy what I said unless you are really passionate about it. Answer each question as truthfully as you can. And then we're going to dive right on in!
