Being in photography and videography is hard. It is a creative field of work and anytime that is the case, things can get difficult. The reason being that your creativity is different from others. Not everyone is going to appreciate your work, juts like you may not always appreciate or like someone else’s work
With that being said, take pride in your work. If you are happy with it, then that it all that matters. You will attract people with the same creative eye that you have.
Another important part of being good in this field of work is to have passion for what you are doing. A lack of passion is easily visible in video and even in photos.
Always learn, always grow, and always do new things. Keep what you are doing interesting and if you’re not happy, then change it.
It is as simple as that.
Don’t let negative criticism get you down. It is inevitable that people are going to have negative things to say about you and the work that you do. It is so important to disregard what these people have to say. Take constructive criticism when needed and listen to nay sayers with a deaf ear.
Creating content of any kind is one of the most fun, enjoyable, and rewarding jobs that you can have. You capture memories that will be around for forever and that is such a special thing to people.
I hope that some of what I have said in this blog, and the others, has been helpful to you in some way.
