Locate & Create

I’ll have to be honest that when I first decided to give blogging a try that there was one factor that almost turned me away from it – finding locations.

To eliminate that fear, I decided that I wasn’t going to focus on the location and that I would only shoot in front of my house and on the streets near where I lived. That worked for a while – but only a while. I began to quickly realise that this was not something I can keep up and that I really needed to step up my game in finding better locations than just city streets and alleyways.

From then, finding locations to shoot seemed much easier than before. And this was not because suddenly I just came across better locations, but because I stopped being scared and I stopped thinking that this was going to be a problem. I know now that my attitude towards this in the beginning meant that I had given up before I had even started trying.

Now everywhere I go, I find my eyes scouring the area for any possible location to shoot at. It’s become somewhat of an obsession – almost a daily challenge for myself. I can’t believe that I had almost given up blogging (even before I had started!) because of an imaginary fear that I had create for myself and that fear led me to limit my potential to try and to be adventurous with my work.

I have successfully turned that initial fear into a passion and just the mere thought of finding a new cool location to shoot at makes me giddy with excitement!

In life , I have promised myself that if it’s hard – I’ll do it. If I’m scared – I’ll do it. And if it’s challenging and stretches my capabilities – I’ll do it. Because what scares me more is never growing and never becoming a better version of myself.

So if you guys have been meaning to start doing something but an aspect of it is putting you off – make that aspect your new passion!

  1. I’m so glad you address this Nün!! I had the same fear, but my photographer makes me feel comfortable. I used to avoid spaces with a lot of people…but it also eliminated really cool backgrounds, and for what?
    I got over it when I realized passerbyers were just curious, but harmless. It makes me feel a lot less foolish that you had the same fear too! You’re one of my fav bloggers ❤
