Hungry for success

I have been hungry for progression of my ‘skills’ as a photographer for some time now. Always saying I’m going to do this or that to improve but never following through.

I find it easy to follow through on my equipment shopping list but never make the time to use it.

So after stumbling upon I am going to try and do something about it starting today.

I’m going to follow Tasra’s lead and try to improve my photography 300% in 1 year by doing the following:

1. Take and blog at least 1 photo a day.

2. Read at least 1 page of my camera manual.

3. Study some professional images every day.

So there it is and here I go.

So the image above ‘Hungry for success’ was taken on my kitchen table. It’s a simple wooden bowl I purchased in Sri Lanka with a basil leaf inside. The basil leaf was harmed after the making of this image as I ate it.

With regard to the reading a page of the manual, I’m going to be a bit different here and allow myself the choice to read some of a photography book or the some of the manual. Today I have been reading “Within the frame” by David duCheim. The last chapter I read was on photographing people, something I’m terrified of. This is my second time reading this book and I highly recommend it.

Reading this book has also fulfilled the 3rd part of today task, that of viewing photographers images. The images in the book are just fantastic.

So there you have it, day one is over and I’m hungry for more.
