I recently started watching YouTube video tutorials about photography. It has been hard for me to admit it, but I’ve been feeling kind of stuck with my photography. That’s why I decided to look for tutorials, videos and stuff that could help me bring my photos to another level.
I thought I wanted to master Adobe Lightroom. So that’s what I started looking when I had a revelation. I discovered that I need to experiment more and bring new ideas to the photoshoots instead of to the post-processing of my photos.
So I started to watch videos of photoshoots ideas instead of developing and editing tutorials. I came across a YouTube channel I really, really liked and almost binged watch all of the videos. It’s Jessica’s Kobeissi’s Channel.
She’s a great fashion and portrait photographer and besides really enjoying her videos, I was inspired by her work and her attitude. So I decided I just need to practice more, be more constant with my photography and less afraid to try new things.
Right now I’m doing very little. I’m not even having one photo shoot a month (which sucks) and translates to blog abandonment and social media neglect.
I’m going to try and do at least one short photo shoot a week and try new developing tools and techniques, keep watching tutorials and keep learning. The first step was to buy some fairy lights and try new, fun things with them! Just a the photo I took of Mango.
I will keep sharing my progress with you :). Hope you have a wonderful week!
