If the success of my photography business was gauged by the amount of blog entries I post, it may seem that work has slowed down.
And you'd be right.. well, partly. Just not quite in that sense.
Let me catch you up since my last post. Around the end of November, I decided not to invest in that new MacBook (even though this one is going on six years old..). Instead, I invested in myself.
I'd say about 80 percent of my photography-related time in college was spent in the darkroom. There was nothing digital about my degree. (I resented this for a while, but now I respect it more than ever).
So by 'invested in myself,' I mean trusted myself to know this amazing process from beginning to end. From film to capture to print.
To slow down.
To think deliberately about the image you want to create and to be completely involved every step of the way.
I hope that slowing down and becoming more focused and taking an active role in my work will help my growth as a photographer and maybe do the same for someone else.
