Practiced street photography while walking around aimlessly one day. It’s a genre that I do enjoy but I rarely take photos of graffiti because I don’t know what a lot of it means. I like how the ink really stands out. I like how I edited it but I’m sure I can still improve the shot in more than one way.

Doing my best to hang on while improving my life.

 

Take the first move,

Practice

DSC_0602.jpg

Continuing to practice doing different types of photography. My dog is a very good subject as he stays still and is not afraid of the camera. I’m working on the background and will continue to try to improve.

Doing my best to continue to work hard on all aspects of my life. I am still struggling with my retail job. I just have to figure out how to balance work, school, and passions. Besides that, I am waiting until the 19th when my six month probation period ends to start applying to a new place of employment. All I can do is try to my best to succeed and push myself to the limit.

Enjoy your day/night,

 

David

Editing

DSC_1045

This shot features bushes and trees on a cloudy day. I edited this photo in Lightroom to be much darker in order to create a whole new image. I can see some of my mistakes and have some ideas about how I would edit this photo better. I really enjoy taking gothic-like photos as it fits my personal taste. Hoping to continue to explore Lightroom and photography more.

Getting ready to explore my options as my probation period ends in fourteen days at the retail job. I don’t want to stay because it sucks but some of my co-workers are amazing. It will cause me some grief when I leave, however, it is something I have to do because the company I work for really sucks and I know leaving will help my mental health. Anyway, follow your own path.

 

Stay fresh,

Striving to Improve

DSC_0597.jpg

A type of photography that I don’t do much is animal photography. However, I am still exploring my camera and what I can do at my current level. Also trying to gain experience using Lightroom. This dog is known for being chill unless you have a vacuum. He stood still for me an was looking at me the whole time. I simply wanted to practice my photo taking and editing skills. I think I did a good job but I’m sure there is room to improve.

Took a much-needed rest day. Tested out my Xbox One and what it can do compared to my Ps4. Did a lot of soul searching as well and making some progress. Still, have a lot more to go over and I still have to study for a test that I am taking tomorrow. A lot to do but I am enjoying most of it.

Exploring

A shot I took while on a walk. It’s another shot that I took when I first got my camera. I can see how I can improve it and thus will go back to take a better shot.

I’ve simply been exploring my work and my mind to see where I am going. More about that at a later time. Been breaking down hard questions to simpler ones to great success. I still have a lot more thinking to do.

Stay strong,

 

David

Calm

DSC_1026.jpg

Experimented with nature and the color blue one decent day as I walked. The blue could pop more, which is something I will work on when I boot up Lightroom the next time.

Doing my best to stay calm in stressful situations. I actually got a lot done and hope to be able to do more tomorrow. Hanging out with a co-worker/friend for a while outside of work was pretty cool. I’m able to be myself without restraining myself due to being in the workplace. Working hard to become better and do better. Chasing the best version of myself slowly.

Was able to start riding my motorcycle with confidence. Will continue to develop a better mindset that will enable me to stay cool, calm, and collected.

 

Peace,

David

Exploring

DSC_2015

Was making my home and noticed this little guy resting on a fence near an empty field. I captured many shots of this little critter. I like this shot a lot but I don’t believe it’s the best shot that I captured with this subject. I am simply exploring my photography skills and my camera.

Working on my career when I am not at my retail job. I am exploring what will help me in the future and what I can do now to create the future that I want. It’s hard but it is a worthy challenge. I have to remind myself of why I am doing all the things that I am doing and it helps me get through the difficult times(especially at the retail job).

I hope that my path beings to unblur, unlike this little guy.

Have fun,

 

David
