In a recent Blog post I mentioned victories I’d had over the period of the week, the fact that they were small, yet still victories. Among those victories were better grades in class and a boost in social media, raising interest and one victory that I was most proud of… My picture getting into the newspaper.
This was the first time I’d seen anything of mine in print, and for an aspiring photographer/film maker, it was a very special moment for me. The local newspaper holds a little competition every week, everyone sends their pics in and someone has to sit through and scroll and scroll until they find one they think is the best and pop it in!
The actual photo that made it, I took whilst on a walk in the park with my family. I liked it mainly because it featured a flying dog, my flying dog! I didn’t tell anyone about it, I just sent the photo, I didn’t expect it to be chosen, and while it is a small victory, it is a significant one, my first one. So, there we have it, don’t be afraid to take risks, if you want something, go get it! Don’t fret about failure, because that’s a vicious cycle that leads you to failure itself! Remember, work hard, have fun, make a difference! Jess Check out my website for more snaps! http://www.synerjes.com/
