Upgraded!

One thing I have realized about myself is that I can get really interested in many things (e.g., learning to skateboard or learning to play guitar), but when things get difficult, I have a tendency to give up. However, I think the only hobby I haveย not given up on is photography. Of course, there had been several times when I would get incredibly jealous of some awesome work another photographer had shot and my thoughts would bring me down. (Mostly knowing that the photographer has been photographing for around the same amount of time that I have is what hits the spot.) Yes, I realize that I have a tendency to compare myself when I need not to. It is difficult for me to see whether or not my photos are “good” because I feel like I lack an artistic eye, but I know I love the feeling I get when I captureย the perfect candid moments. No doubt my relationship with photography has definitely been a struggle for me. But despite my on-again-off-again relationship with photography, I decided I was finally worthy enough of a camera upgrade.

It has been almost 5 years since my parents gifted me my first DSLR and now I can afford my own. Cheers to me for finally sticking to a hobby! Now it is time to learn how to use a camera all over again. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I totally get that jealous feeling too, but either I blame it on their equipment or try to figure out the way they edit their photos haha. But sometimes I also realize that it’s also the location/lighting they’re shooting at that makes their photos just so much more dynamic. So my takeaway from all of this was: shoot pretty things, get pretty photos (with a good viewpoint/composition of course). A not-so-great philosophy, but it’s what I’m going with at the moment, hehe.

    And yes, the perfect candid moments make it all worth it! The unique and meaningfulness.

    Anyway, I’m super exited to see your full frame photos! With L Lens quality too! (as if your photos weren’t already amazing)

    • Thanks for sharing that you’ve felt the same way as well. I *love* your photos btw! All your food photos always make me envious. ๐Ÿ™‚ And I think I currently follow the “not-so-great” philosophy. ;p

  2. That’s what I love most about your blog are your photos! Although I like taking pictures, I lack the motivation to learn more about photography…so I’m a tiny bit jealous but more in awe when I’m around my friends who are into photography.

    I also want to thank you for still reading my blog =^P, even though it’s not really interesting (haha). And especially for the comments, no one comments anymore.

    • Having a WordPress account makes it easier to read your blog now since I don’t follow as many people on here. I have come to feel like a blog is not worth it if I don’t have photos to support them. Ha! Isn’t that silly? And comments are THE best part about blogs imo!!
