The Photography X-Factor

Imagine…being able to take beautiful photos at the next family outing & impressing everyone with your flash photography skills…wouldn’t it be great to finally be the talk of the party?

Now, I didn’t start out as a professional photographer with many expensive camera lenses, flash guns and other equipments.

I was a struggling so-called photographer trying to learn how shoot like an experienced photographer. Obviously, I failed many times.

I spent my hard-earned money from my part time job to attend photography courses, but didn’t learn what I needed to achieve the realism of an experienced photographer.

I can still remember the first time I offered to take photos for my relative’s baby back in 2007, when I didn’t really understand how to attain my potential.

I thought I managed to take nice photos, so I shared it with all my friends – but they laughed at my photography skills.

Because of teaching others, I lack of practice time and stopped learning in photography for almost a year! My photography techniques became stuck at the same level without improvement.

Deep down in my heart, I know that I’ve been satisfied for where I am in my photography techniques and skills. I’ve been satisfied that I stopped improving my photography skills.

I was invited to join an event that is organized for every photographer to share their masterpiece with everyone.

I suddenly did not feel so satisfied anymore. I had thought I was good enough to master the art of photography… until I met many experienced photographers who were far better than me.

And while I was inspired by them, being with these experienced photographers made me totally dissatisfied.

You see, most people take expensive photography courses and buy many different types of pricey equipments.

I don’t have thousands of dollars to throw at new cameras, lights, and to enrol in courses as I have spent most of my hard-earned money.

I sat at my “little photography lab” at home looking at all of my previous photos taken… and eventually thought of… Read more…
