Click, click and clicking away - these past couple of years now. Have managed to fill two external drives of 'raw' pics. And only a few of them, satisfactory enough, to enter my gallery. Moving my pen round and round to make that perfect circle but still some way to go before I a get there though.
Torn between my professional life and my passion for creativity - capturing my interests through the lens and exhausting battle coupled with my various insert dividing my time, making it hard to hone my skills in just one thing and one thing alone. Something I had learnt and had been taught very early in my life but never able to put to practice.
Still go out on shoots; like taking snaps of structures and landscapes and so much more than I care to list. All I think I have been able to really improve is on my lightroom skills. My real frustration I guess is when I can't distinguish between a really good picture and an average one: I am confused that way. Most times someone has to tell me when I have done something good.
But this burning desire pushes me one. Pushes me on to keep visiting this site and looking, learning and taking mental notes. Putting aside a few hours just to draw straight lines and circles and sometimes ¾ angled portraits read thorough anatomy books and drawing techniques. Manipulate a bit, illustrate a bit. Indulge myself a bit. Satisfy myself a bit.
