I’ve been watching Sue Bryce on CreativeLive again and been so inspired as always. One thing that hit me like a baseball bat was discussion about flash versus natural light and adjustments made in the camera.
Sue admitted that she doesn’t use the histograms because she wasn’t a technical photographer. She didn’t need to, because she takes great portraits. She also mentioned that she didn’t use flash because she didn’t know how to use it.
Here is an amazing photographer, someone who people fly around the world to visit and have them make them feel amazing, admitting why she doesn’t use something. That she doesn’t know something.
Why are we so afraid? Afraid to admit we don’t know something. Scared to bare our souls to the world or just a single person.
It’s impossible to know everything and impossible to be perfect at everything. We all know it. We can usually accept it in others. Why do we have such a hard time realizing it in ourselves?
I know that I am weak on my posing and my selling. I accept that I need to practice making my clients move their body so that they look at their absolute best. My old mindset for my photography business was all about capturing the natural moments. This is wonderful…except the images were just okay. No one ended up looking spectacular. Now that I’ve figured out I was making excuses to myself, I’m working on it.
What do you have trouble with? What fault are you hiding from yourself and your clients? What can you do to work on that fault? Want me to help you grow past that?
I am here for you!
