Exploring Life

Exploring while looking up. I took this with my Cybershot I believe, however, would like to take a new shot of a similar subect with my Nikon D3300. I think I made it too dark which is rare for me to say. Anyway, it’s an older picture and I can see very thing I can do to make this shot better next time. Surely but slowly I’ll improve till the day I die.

Working in retail gives me a lot of time to observe human behavior. A lot of what I’ve seen is negative as if people don’t know how to be respectful to others, products, or the employees of the store. I find so many half eaten things in random places like half eaten donuts in the freezer, half drank Gatorade behind cottage cheese, etc. Besides that, I simply think all day about what I need to do and what I truly want.

I do my best to muster energy to get things done but after this week I’ll be able to do a bit more. I’ll be working less and hopefully will be able to lose some more weight.

Not bad, but I will have to go back and edit it some more to make the subject a bit brighter. Caught this while walking one day and took several shots of this shot before it disappeared. It’s normal for me to take shots like this daily. I take shots of random subjects and willing to fail in doing so. I treat it as a learning process and will continue to do so to improve.

I’ve been working hard and saving up money. I’m debating on buying Photoshop and/or Lightroom from Adobe. I will have to do research as I do need an editing software that can handle RAW photos. I have a good amount of photos that I need to edit so I will need to decide. My problem is I don’t want to make monthly payments on anything right now. The downside is that my photos will sit on my desktop just begging to be edited and uploaded. Will take some more time to consider my options.

Besides that, I am trying to improve my life by improving myself. Still looking for another job and hopefully one in photography or at least one with videography. Will keep my head up and enjoy the now.

Peace,

Took a short break, but I’m back on schedule to do daily posts again. Since the last time, I posted anything I’ve upgraded to a Nikon D3300. It’s my first DSLR and I bought it entirely with my hard earned cash. It truly felt great to do so, I took it on a 6-mile walk and captured about 700 photos. I’m still adjusting to it and learning about it. Will need to find the manual online soon. Was able to publish my first post for Unotaku.net and the second one will be published soon.

I truly learned how to work on a deadline to be considered an active writer for the website. Besides that, I’ve been doing my best to pursue photography/filmmaking full-time and will be applying to jobs related to both fields. It should be easy to apply just have to update my resume and press send. I’m fully committed to this journey and willing to invest in it. If I fail so be it, I can always pick myself up and try again.

That’s it for now but stay tuned for more tomorrow.

Peace,

David

 

P.S. I still have to finish designing this website.
