Whilst listening to other people’s opinions on your work can be illuminating, you should remember that you are your own boss and your final say goes. (…) The question comes back to you: what do you want? A lesson that has been hammered home to me (…) is that you should truly shoot what you love.

What do you want? & What do you love shooting?
Those must be the hardest questions to answer for me at this stage! There are so many things I want to experiment in photography before I can give answers to questions like that.
In the last 4 months I’ve been exploring a lot:
– I got a big technical insight with the course I did in the Summer,
– the 30 day challenge I made totally unlocked my creativity,
– I’m much more aware of what’s around me before I take a photo.
But, there are still many things I want to try out before I decide what to go for, such as:
– photographing people (I’m kind of uncomfortable with that),
– shooting a show (either music, dance, theater, something on stage),
– macro photography,
– taking pictures in a studio (and learn more about the use of light).
However I’m already sure of 3 things I love in photography:
* keep it simple, because simple is good
* making daily life and common things look like something beautiful
