It might sound obvious, but successful photographers are the ones out there learning and taking photographs. The best artists are the ones that are learning and regularly drawing and painting. I might have all the ideas in the world, but it won’t really matter if I don’t take action to make those ideas come to life. Too often I find myself planning for my next adventure or creation, but I never move past the planning. Take action!
Yesterday my husband and I had planned to go out in the evening to take photographs of the fall scenery, but by the time work was over we were both too tired. I wanted to take a nap so badly, I could almost hear my bed crying out to me. But, in the end photography won, and we dragged ourselves to the car with our cameras. By the end of the evening we were energized and happy and got some great pictures. We couldn’t believe how close we were to giving up that opportunity in the first place.
Here are a few of my favorite images, which have also been uploaded to my Shop page for those interested in prints.
