Fighting a losing battle…

Hi there,

I am having trouble studying today.

First I tried studying using my computer monitor, but keep losing my place or just losing interest. I realy tried going paperless with my studies but I am not coping at all. I need to make notes, underline important facts so that I can remember them.

I ended up printing my module. It went okay for a while till all the formulas and number talks and there they lost me again.

Normally I start early in the morning around 7:00am, but today I only started around 11:30am maybe this is why I can’t concentrate.

Now I am writing a blog so that I don’t have to read about pixels per inch and, screen resolution and how to calculate it.

Okay I have waisted enough time. Going to meditate for 7 minutes just to recharge and then start from scratch again….

My way of studying. Printed module and electronic version.

Thank you for stopping by. Please feel free to leave some advise on studying…

Never to old to learn something new.

I was always proud to say I am a self-taught photographer. Since I started my journey as a photographer in 2009 I have watched countless YouTube videos to help me and read a lot of articles on different types of photography, how to edit and marketing.

I subscribed to Creative Life and sat through many nights of online workshops. I also bought a few workshops for myself and I am still using them. I took hundreds and thousands of photos up to now, overcome many obstacles, and improvised when I was in difficult situations.

When I started looking for a job at a studio nobody would give me the credit for all the hard work I put in myself. All that they wanted was a piece of paper to prove that I can call myself a professional photographer.

This affected my self-esteem, I started thinking I do not know what I am doing. After feeling sorry for myself I started looking at different online courses and I enrolled with The Photography Institute.

Up to now, I have learned a lot and I am very glad I did enroll. I am also very happy to say that I am doing great in my assignments and that I did not waste my time reading all those articles and watching all those videos and tutorials

I fell a bit behind with Covid 19 lockdown but this is not going to stop me. I will finish this course before the end of September 2020 as I planned. Even if this means studying full time every day until my last module….

I can’t wait to hang my diploma on my wall. Then I can also tick Photography Diploma off my Bucket list…..

Till next time, stay safe.
