Changes

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.

 

DSC00013-01.jpeg 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.

121 Long Walk

Captured this little guy while on a journey of my own. I don’t take a lot of shots of living creatures besides humans. I saw this snail moving in the street towards something. I will never know where it was going but it doesn’t matter.

I’m exploring new subjects everyday and seeing how I can capture them in an interesting way. It doesn’t always work out but sometimes it does. If I had a chance I would try to alter this shot move but tilting it or cutting out the blurred elements. However, I do like the part of the photo that’s blurred as it adds a human element to the shot that some of photos lack.

Still trying to figure things out, I’m doing my best to believe in the process.

Enjoy life and do what you must to do what you love,

112 – Shady Flow

My favorite shot I’ve taken of this area. I can see the imperfections in this shot and know what I can do to improve it. I like the lines in the shot and the reflection of the trees. The more I look at it, the more I like this shot and start to see new things about it.

Walked 8 miles today, took a lot of photos on this enjoyable journey. I still have to upload them and edit them. Pushed myself a lot today and I feel that I’ve been stronger mentally and physically. I’m glad that I am putting in work to improve both of them as I’m finally starting to see changes and the positive results of them.

Dare yourself to get lost,

108 – Hokusai

Capturing the beauty of life through a simples flower. At least this beauty is true and always exposing itself. In the future, I would get even closer to the flower so it stands out more.

Currently, watching “Miss Hokusai” a Japanese animated feature based on a mix of a manga and historical events. It’s a beautiful piece of work that is inspiring me to get to work. Been reading “Osamu Tezuka Story”, a rather large book about the godfather of manga. It’s cool to know that despite being so busy he watched one day everyday like I do now. He often worked on 8 to 10 serializations while also studying medicine. Through this book I’ve been able to see what it takes to become the best of the best. Its a long of work that never gets easier as time goes on. Got to always strive for the best, keep learning, keep improving, and do what you love.

I hope you are on your right path,

David

IMG_20180303_104008-01.jpegSimply looked up and captured a “T” in the clouds. It was a nice and sunny day which isn’t all too rare in California. I don’t take too many photos of the sky but this one has to be my favorite.

I’ve been meditating and listening to instrumental music first thing in the morning to slowly wake me up. It’s hoped me, I don’t feel like doing it but I forced myself to. I’m able to control my emotions more. Also been taking cold showers which is really great once you get over the initial feeling of freezing your a## off.

Overall, I’m reaching towards the sky to live the life that I want to. I’ve taken a few steps towards that live but I have to walk up a mountain before I can truly start to see more of the life that I want to life. I’m grateful for the time I have and I will not waste it anymore.

Shoot for your dreams,

David

IMG_20180219_100438-01.jpegChoosing what is important and what isn’t important in the long run. Giving up what isn’t important is challenging, however, it’s worth it if I want to be a better creator and a better man. One thing I’m giving up is naps unless absolutely necessary and giving up certain YouTube channels and focusing on finding my passion. Instead of doing these things I will focus on acting and gather experience to improve in every category.

I am falling in love with the process as it is thought-provoking. Although, when done right you don’t think at all when you are working hard. In the past, overthinking has been a weakness of mine. I’m working on it and I know it can’t be fixed right away but I’m improving every single day.

I love these flowers and how they look without editing. They are beautiful as they bask in the sun on a nice day. Basically, enjoy the simple moments and the simple beauty while it lasts.
