Photography, to me, is never easy. It’s never easy because I feel like every shot has to be perfect. The lighting, the framing, is it in focus? It’s never easy because I don’t always feel satisfied with my shots. Like every artist who’s always striving to make that masterpiece. Like every musician who’s always working hard to perfect their craft. It became a struggle to me.
That’s probably the reason why I stopped taking photos for a while. It felt like I hit a wall and lost my drive to continue. I keep telling myself that “all I need is an inspiration” and waited for it. But that hasn’t happened so far. It hasn’t happened because maybe I should be looking for it. Maybe I should be out there with my camera taking every photo that I could take. Or maybe I should look at my old photos, check for my mistakes and the things that I want to improve in the future.
I assume that it will take forever to get that perfect shot.
But I guess that’s what photography is.
And it’s a part of me now.
