My Future with Photography

August 24, 2013  •  Leave a Comment
I am an I.T. engineer for a major corporation.  I do enjoy what I get to put my hand on.  Photography is a hobby of mine.  Where does it fit in with my future?

As I have done several shoots, I have realized that I do enjoy fashion photography.  Though, my passion for it is not as strong as others.  So far, I have found that car photography is awesome!  I love lighting them, love showing the engineering of them, and the presence.  Cars, to me, feel much grander and a marvel.

Where does that lead me to?  If I were to dream big, I would like to shoot Ferrari's, Lamborghini's, Porsche's, and other exotic cars.  I would love to put them on roads in Arkansas, Kansas, Swiss Alps, Australian outback, or even the hills of England.  To me, a car has a place where it's natural at.  For instance, convertible Lamborghini is at home on Miami beach cruising at dusk with the neon of the hotel's lite up.

How do I get there, and is it even possible?  For one thing, I must take the realization I am a type 1 diabetic.  Going out on my own without insurance is a huge risk.  One thing I must keep in mind is God will provide, if that is where I am to go.

Getting there is tricky for me; however, not impossible.  Where I am in my photography is that I need to learn what will jump me to the next level.  I am trying my hand at car photography, and will continue to focus on it.  I believe that getting to the next level requires me to get a mentor, as well as doing a workshop.  How I do those two, not completely sure.

One challenge for me is that I do not have an outgoing personality.  It's difficult for me to meet new people and even more difficult to open up to them.  However, I do consider myself a people person.  Without people, I loose energy and tend to seclude myself.

I am not opposed to sharing about my challenges or successes.  I am certainly not one to say "look at me, I am great!"  However, I share my challenges and successes, because I am a real person.  Even in business, as I am a business major, one must be real.  Too often we put on the button-down shirt, tie, and shoes and push our personality away.

I am a real person, ready to do real work, and ready to make the next jump.  Where might it take me?  Where will the wind blow!
