WHY YOU SHOULD EMBRACE CHANGES IN PHOTOGRAPHY!

Change, as they say, is the only thing that’s constant. And yet still, most of us are not comfortable with it. This is what makes change management such a difficult concept. Even artists love to stay in their comfort zones and keep doing what they feel comfortable with.

But what if things were to unexpectedly change tomorrow? How would we cope with that? Considering the recent change in his own life that photographer SEAN TUCKER had to go through, he’s expertly positioned to share his thoughts and suggestions in this video:

Creativity thrives when the work environment is dynamic. As Tucker rightly puts it, staying within the same surroundings can start to feel sickening. This can severely limit your creativity. It is therefore wise to keep going to different places to find photo opportunities.

We must learn to try new things to improve!

If you’ve been taking great photos in a certain spot for a long time, the thought of going to a new place can be frightening at first. That’s because we expect ourselves to instantly start taking high-quality photos in the new environment. But the truth is that you can’t just pop up to a new place and start producing world-class content. Patience is key.

This notion holds true not only for your photography locations, but for your other practices as well. For instance, we’re always afraid to try out new genres. The idea of taking “bad photos” when trying something new haunts us. And we might not realize it instantly, but trying out new things can be a great opportunity to develop a new skill set.

Even if your images from a new endeavor don’t meet your standards, don’t worry about others pointing fingers. Don’t let them weaken you. Keep working on yourself and one day you’ll make the jump.

“Work in the long term to become a better, more well-rounded, more skilled, more tooled-up photographer.”

Sean Tucker

The most important thing when dealing with change is the need to take small but consistent steps. Be ready to face challenges with patience and hard work. Changes are scary, but when you make it through, the realization of progress will make everything worth it.

YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD TO TAKE UP PHOTOGRAPHY!

I call it: you are never too old to fulfill your dreams. Have you ever thought that maybe there should be an age limit to people taking photos? No, doesn’t seem like that should be. And since the pandemic, more older people are getting involved in photography.

AN OLDER PERSON CAN DO MANY GREAT THINGS!

 For many, it can be difficult sometimes to avoid thinking about what might have been if only you’d picked something up earlier in life or spent more time practicing it in the first place. Heck, some people seem to think that once you start down a particular path or surpass the age of 25 (four if you want to be a classically trained musician…) there’s little point in trying something new. But that’s an outdated way of thinking.

We’re always hearing from readers who have taken up photography later in life or professionals who ditched their stable nine-to-five in pursuit of their photography business dream. Hobbies were on the rise during lockdown and more adults are willing to take a chance and set off down the road less travelled than ever before.

OTHER FAMOUS PEOPLE WHO STARTED LATE IN LIFE:

Photography isn’t the only creative discipline where late bloomers have confidently stamped their mark. It’s well known that post-impressionist painter Paul Cézanne didn’t create his best works until later in life and literature is rife with famous authors who delayed starting their career. American author, Laura Ingalls Wilder, of Little House on the Prairie fame, was well into her 60s when her first book was published.

There are famous actors too:

Plenty of famous actors are late bloomers too. If Samuel L. Jackson had given up on his then-unremarkable acting career before his mid-40s, he’d have never starred as the unforgettable Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction and subsequently become one of the hardest-working and in-demand actors in Hollywood. 

REGARDLESS OF AGE, JUST GET GOING:

So, the next time you find yourself questioning whether it’s too late to try something new – photography or otherwise – grab the bull by the horns and do it anyway!
