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.
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.
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.
P.S. I still have to finish designing this website.
Understanding that I must take ownership for my life and all the things I’ve done is something that truly has hit me since I started working this new job. I am cutting things out that I don’t need since I just don’t have any time as I am working four am to one pm shifts for four days a week. I only have about eight hours every day when I come home after work to do what I need to. I am still adjusting to the job so I often take a two-hour nap.
I really don’t want this job but I’m keeping it up until I am able to find a new job. Hopefully, it will be in a career field that I actually want to work in. For now, I am doing my best to do what I need to at work to make money and raise capital for the things that I truly want to do. It’s not easy but no one said that it would be. I am at fault and I accept that. However, I will not simply lay on back and accept life. I will raise to do the things that I want to do before I open my eyes and I’ve spent my whole life working this job.
My goal is to be able to take my photography and my writing and turn them into a full-time career. I’m starting by writing for an anime-based website for free and will be hosting my own anime/manga blog very soon while still maintaining this blog. I will probably buy a domain name for this site and make it truly mine. I have to do some more research but I will make a decision by tomorrow.
I am in the shadows now but with small acts of confidence, I will shine. As I love this!
Do what you love and want you can truly be great it,
I’m playing with color more even though I often want to switch photo to black and white. This is not my favorite photo but I enjoy the warm colors present in the shot. I would go back and edit it better. I am noticing all the flaws as I write this post. I’m simply trying things in my pursuit to improve my photographic skills.
I’ve been walked 3 miles every morning, it’s a great way for me to start the game. I’m working hard to better my mental and physical health. Sacrificing things as well, my room is looking more and empty as each day goes on. I’m sacrificing all the things that either bring me joy or it’s just something to just watch. It’s incredibly different but I’m learning to fight the suffering to improve my life and myself. It’s a day-to-day process that I will not give up even after I get what I want. I want to be great so I must become great and with that sacrifice is important.
Take time to smell the flowers,
Exploring beauty in it’s simple form. I had fun with this shot and simply like it for what it is.
A frustrating day but I pushed myself even after throwing up a bit. I’m working hard to develop myself and my life.
Going to update this blog daily again but with more focus on putting multiple photos in each post. This is a shot I took after walking past this area for a few days in a row. I wish I could have made the flower stand out more but I do like the shot.
I explored visual hierarchy with this shot. I enjoy this shot a lot, as it is probably the most creative photo I’ve taken with flowers as a subject. There are a few changes that I would make if I get another chance. I can see that my photography is growing gradually each time I view the photos for editing.
