And the spin is you doing your unique vision of it. Nobody can copy how you feel. Nobody can copy how you feel. No back and copy your inspiration. You can find a picture in a magazine and try to copy that picture and that style. But you're copying the surface under that picture is the inspiration, and that comes from you. So you find out what makes you feel alive. What makes you feel good when you shoot? You find, um, your inspiration through travel through being a book through a movie, and that inspires your story. So as you're putting your storybook to get your story board together, that's from your inspiration. That's not a copy, and that cannot be. Copy is you work as you work as an assistant and we're for dozens of photographers. You see them work every single day as a photo assistant. Your with, um, almost night and day traveling around the world, working on the sits, setting up the lights, putting the camp together, saying the F stop shutter speed. And then we go to do your own thing. You can't copy what they do because the source of the inspiration comes from here. You can't copy that. Your inspiration comes from your life from your life.
