Be Vulnerable

Too often, I’m not satisfied with my photographs. Superficially they might be ‘beautiful’ – but what do I feel when I look at them? Nothing. They’re like a pretty face that’s pleasant to look at, but exchangeable with any other, blank. I figured that the lack of emotions is due to the fact that I’m still a beginner. My focus isn’t on conveying emotions yet. Instead, I’ve been working on the theme and atmosphere. I’ve also been playing safe, following other photographers and trying out...

It’s time for the next TreatYoSelf&Plan link up post! From now on, I’ll have those posts on Monday to get my week planned and review how I’ve done. I loved Diana’s idea with the hearts so I asked her if I could copy it. Generous as she is, she let me – so here are my treats from last week: ♥ I bought a notebook and pencil for all my ideas and inspirations. Some pages are already filled up. ♥ I had a...
