The first step in any journey is the most challenging one, fear sets in — you pull your foot back and stand there motionless. From my own experience it is the fear of things that have not or may even never happen. The fear created by our minds ability to con jour up imagined future events.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Seven years ago I started my journey into photography which has interested me since childhood but I never did fully say yes to the urge.
My back ground in photography was as a dabbler a snapshot here and there.
The turning point came at work when I was asked to do product images for a website. This was a challenging, exciting and a rewarding experience. What was the first step– that’s right, to simply say YES and dive in.
My first digital camera was an Olympus C-2500L 2.5MP “yes 2.5MP and it got the job done”.The photos were processed with Adobe Photoshop 4 which was challenging and fun to learn. This really stoked my interest to go deeper into photography but it wasn’t until years later I said Yes to photography outside of work.
