Who Are Your Heroes?
Taking a photo with a point and shoot camera is easy. Taking a photo with a DSLR in manual using a flash is something else entirely! It’s hard to believe how many moving pieces are involved in a single shot. It can feel like orchestrating a symphony; a symphony that sometimes sounds terrible. The pros make it seem simple. They make a few adjustments here, pose their subject there, and presto…the perfect shot. The truth is, all professional photographers experience their fair share of ups and downs. They’ve struggled to learn their craft. They’ve ridden the emotional roller coaster of failing and succeeding, only to fail again.
I know this because I’ve experienced some of the top photographers in the industry up close and personal. They’ve come together in a creative classroom like no other. They spend days telling their stories live, in front of thousands of people around the world. They laugh and cry, they’re nervous, they’re vulnerable and they’re amazing. They reveal themselves. We wonder what it would be like to be as talented and successful. They are our heroes. We admire them for their courage and talents. They inspire us to continue.
The learning never ends at creativeLIVE. The inspiration never stops. The heroes keep coming.
