This photo is from 3 to 4 years ago. I remember spending two hours playing basketball at the local park when everyone is at home sleeping. I waited for the perfect angle and captured the hoop. I believe this was done with a Samsung Galaxy S3. Which had the best camera on a phone that I’ve ever owned. It’s a little noisy but I am glad to come back to these shots and see how far I’ve come.
One more day at work and then four off days (calling out one day). Worked hard today both in my day job and out. Was able to study more about investing and might be interested in swing trading. Will have to do more research and study investing more before I make a decision like that. Got another co-worker interested in investing which was pretty nice.
Picked Marie Kondo & Scott Soenshein’s new book ” Joy at Work”. I’ve only read one page so far but it seems to be an interesting read. Going to use it to clean up desk and provide a better place for me to work on this blog, my photography, video editing, investing, and writing. Going to add it to my schedule tomorrow so hopefully I’ll be able to read quite a bit of it.
So I am going to start to invest into myself more. I really want to leave my job but I don’t want to quickly hop onto the next available retail job. So I’m going to try to obtain some certifications and gain more experience video editing, using photoshop and lightroom, and writing. We will have to see what I can do during these turbulent times.
Besides that, got to figure out a good workout routine and stick with it. For now, got to get some cleaning done before I hit the hay. I have the 4am shift tomorrow.
Found this when I was walking around aimlessly. I like to capture things like this even if some people find my photos creepy. I find myself being afraid of color photos but I took a chance to keep working on editing color photos. I believe I am improving in this area but still have much to learn.
Planning to go to San Fransisco this week so I will have a lot more photos to edit. I am excited to go wild and capture a new area. Working hard to improve myself and in effect my life. Not every part of my life is moving but quite a few are. I still have to make changes to further my progress. I’m doing so much better and I am happy that I am going down this path. I will keep my head up and do what I have to do.
Captured this shot near where I live. It looks like an eye with a 7 but when I first saw it I thought this tagger might be a fan of Yu-Gi-Oh! That’s the main reason why I wanted to capture this subject. I like the lines present and even the trees work well to me. It’s not perfect but I enjoy this shot.
I’m planning to change jobs so I’ll be job hunting like my life depends on it. Still exploring my options and will go after the jobs that I truly want or wouldn’t mind having. Might try to get an internship and a part-time job or two to gain more experience. Anyway, doing my best to continue to be dedicated to improving myself and my passions.
Took this shot shortly after Halloween. I like how well it’s blurred but the face of the subject is a bit blurred which disappoints me a bit. However, forgetting that I actually like this shot. I like seeing the age of the chain and the overall wear of the object. I would like to explore this subject again but sadly it was gone when I walked past this spot again.
Decided to seek a new job due to various reasons. So I will start looking for jobs tomorrow. Made some changes in order to be more dedicated to my passions and me. Overall, I do feel more fulfilled overall and I feel like I have more opportunities to be happy. I’m focusing on what’s important to me and will continue to make the best decisions I can for myself, my family, and my future.
I am a photographer and my confidence is growing stronger.
Took another shot of the same subject of the previous post. This time the first bolt is in focus while the others are blurred. I like this shot more than the previous one. I am focusing on the fundamentals of photography and trying to improve daily.
I have no excuse for not updating this blog. I’m going to post as much as I can and get better as a photographer and a writer.
I enjoy taking shots of aged metal and machines. I wish all the bolts were in focus but I do kind of like how the second one helps break the pattern of blurred subjects. Thought about making this photo black and white but I enjoyed the way it looks in color.
That’s it for my first post of 2019. I will keep this up no matter what.
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.
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.
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.
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.
