Friday tips #9


Hello, friends! How about your week? Mine was full of adventures and work. I´m traveling to Algarve for the next couple of days to shoot and relax a little bit.

So, let´s check today´s tips. Grab your cup of tea first!

Being Perfect: All of us have that little desire of being perfect in what we do. Yes, I´ve been there too for a long time. Most of the times when I looked at my work I was searching for some flaws and then I spent hours choosing a photo to share on my social media. Well, this way of thinking didn´t match at all with what I truly believe about being a photographer. For me, being a photographer is to eternize emotions, let people be who they really are. There´s no way to rate an emotion like perfection. Right? I work with real people in their real lives. I´m not talking about technical issues because we´re always improving our techniques and workflow, I´m talking about our purpose in being who we are in our dream job. I wanted to share this amazing video by Nadia Meli, where she talks about this desire of being perfect.

Antler graphics: I love these graphics! And best of it, they´re free to download! You can use them in your work to make something different, announcements...Just go with the flow and do your best. You can download them here.

Being a freelancer in your family perspective: Well, I could spend hours and hours talking about this. I´ve been a freelancer for half a year and I still struggle with family perspective. I don´t know if it's because they think that I should be a pharmacist forever and a photographer isn´t a real job, but I really don´t care. It broke my heart in the beginning but I learned how to survive, in fact, I became stronger than ever. It is my life, my dream and I must at least give it a try or I will regret my attitude forever. Nowadays, I smile every time they ask how I can survive, what I think about my future or when I get old. Again: I really don´t care. I live in the present, I´m independent, I pay my bills and most of all I´m much happier now with my life. I believe that one day my family will understand my choice and be happy for me. My parents were the first ones to support me and I know it wasn´t that easy but they understand that the most important thing is my happiness and they also know that I always assume my choices and their consequences. SO, DON`T BE AFRAID. If you feel that your moment arrived, go for it! Once more, it is your life, not theirs.
