If you aren’t that great at something, but you love it, PLEASE keep going.

Keep practicing.

Keep learning.

Keep experimenting.

Please don’t give up just because you aren’t “there” yet.

If you’re a photographer but you just feel like your work will never be like that of your idols, take as many pictures as you can.

Watch all the videos you can on how to improve.

Practice any chance you get, even if it means shooting for free.

Don’t give up because you’re using a $200 camera and only have one lens.

Don’t give up because you can’t make your black background look flawless.

Don’t quit because you think you just aren’t talented at this.

Everything in life takes work. And patience. LOTS of patience.

Don’t beat yourself up because your photos are a little out of focus.

Don’t beat yourself up because you can’t get the tones just right when you edit.

With every click of your shutter, think of it as one lesson learned.
