A Little Bit of This and a Little Bit of That

For such a long time i looked for inspiratoin from every other source around. I so badly wanted to be like every other photographer around (Part of me still does). I continaully let my style change over and over again to try to compensate for things i could not think of my self. I would see something cool from one photographer and use it hten see something different and try to use it. This went on and on. I tried to be a master of everything photographer. Research landscape, wildlife, portrait, and wedding photographers and try to be like every single one of them. (Now I'm not saying looking to other photographers is a bad idea) I finally realized that my source of inspiration should come from one area. My God. My Lord inspires me more than anything else. I continually looked to inspiring sayings and quotes to keep me running although God does use them from time to time to inspire me, it wasnt until i looked into that Holy Love letter...aka the Bible.. that i found my true inspiration. I finally learned what art and beauty consist of. It was by the intamate relationship given by the Lord than i found what truly will inspire me for the rest of my life. I looked to my portfolio and it shows where i was leaning on the Lord for His creativity rather than my own. My suggestion to all photographers out there. find what inspires you and lean on it. For me it is the Lord Jesus Christ that will forever inspire me to do what I do. If raods are blocked I know its a raod i am not supposed to follow.
I know my inspiration has and always will come from leaning upon our Lord Jesus Christ
