I'm Still Learning Too
I recently read an article about The Creative World's Bullshit Industrial Complex. It talked about how individuals in the creative industry like to "appear" authoritative when they actually are not.
This made me reflect on the kind of content I've been making on my blog, was I falling prey to this false appeal to authority?
I've been taking photos for over 10 years now; however I am absolutely still learning about photography. There are things I'm not great at, things I need to work on to improve.
I never like the landscapes I take. I think they look boring and I can't edit them the way I want. I go back and forth on the way I edit things, the styling I use on photos, and what export settings I like to use. I'm constantly reading up on new techniques and watching videos on gear and photoshoots, both because I enjoy them and I want to learn.
While I used to write guides and how-to's on Photography, I'm not sure those are really the most useful things for you, the reader. There are an endless amount of resources with explanations that are more eloquent than I can create out on the internet. I'm happy to share the great ones I find with you, but I plan on shifting the content of this blog to be more about my personal experiences rather than trying to create generic resources.
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read any of my blogs, it means a lot to me to share my knowledge and experiences with you. If you haven't already seen them, I started two other blogs on this website. The Walking Blog, where I feature photos taken on walks at local parks, and The Movie Reviews Blog where I write about my movie theater experiences. If you are more of an audio fan, please give the new Rasterized Podcast about life and design a try that I am collaborating on with my close friend Sydney.
I'd love to hear any feedback from you in the comments. Otherwise, go create something!
