Constantly Challenge Yourself

I’ve been thinking this weekend about my photography. My technical knowledge, my posing. And I think it’s time to kick it up a notch. I only have a few weddings left (and a couple more really fun sessions!) and I really want to make the most of them. I think I switched gears a couple (or several–time flies) months ago and it’s time to push myself even further.

Like in life, I need to relax into the pauses and think. To breathe and figure out what I want to do instead of just jumping straight into the next thing so as to not seem awkward.

Does this pose reflect what I want to show as EJP work? What’s an easy adjustment to make it even better? Are my settings not close to what I want, but as good as I can get them in this setting?

And then I saw this pin! Yay! So here’s to today, to pushing ourselves, to growing together.What’s one thing you want to grow in? Where are you going to challenge yourself this week?

    Ursha - This post is exactly what me and my boyfriend(we shoot together) were talking yesterday. We really need to do more about posing for next year, to do more versatile poses and not so posed poses :) I think winter will be the perfect time to learn more about it :)ReplyCancel

    Christy Tyler - I’ve been striving to see composition differently and to push myself to see different angles of a shot I usually would shoot in my ‘normal’ way. I’m excited to see how your work grows as a result of challenging yourself Em!ReplyCancel

    Lauren Wakefield - I did the same thing several months back and it made me feel like I woke up photo wise. So important to keep pushing ourselves. Great reminder.ReplyCancel
