Taking pictures, or even posting them, is definitely not the most challenging part in the photography process…
What’s the worst is actually editing ! I’ve hated editing since I started getting into photography, and then later on when I tried myself to videos, it totally made me abandon my pursuits. Because in the filmmaking industry, or even the video content platforms that you find online, everything is basically centered around the editing process. Which is a bummer for a chaotic mind like mine.
I think I’ve made progress over the years, but I’m just not there yet. Currently trying to at least focus on photos, is already taking so much of my free time and energy… but yes, true that it’s worth it, 100%.
I can’t just share a picture anymore without some kind of edit, it’s just not telling the story, or even the colors I want it to tell. I see something with my eyes, that I’m trying to replicate, and for some reason the lenses capture something that’s always so toned down compared to what I’m seeing, also in my mind. Which is why I gotta edit, it’s like rectifying it, to make it the truest version possible.
Even though sometimes what I’m experiencing with my eyes, feels unnatural and even alien-like, or like I’m in a dreamworld. If the picture isn’t as bright as I felt it in the moment, I have to bright it up… same goes for the rest.
This week is my editing week, which is when I sit down and go about a couple of folders I created with photos I want to share, and I don’t stop until it’s done. & it’s a long way to go, I hate this week. But without it, we ain’t got nothing on this Blog. So wish me strength, and expect the usual ! 😂
