We all make excuses as photographers; I will be the first to admit that I have been frequently guilty of this. But falling into the habit of making excuses can impede our work, growth, and even our bottom lines, which is why it is so important to break the cycle. This excellent video discusses five common excuses we all make and how we can do better.
Coming to you from Ted Forbes with The Art of Photography, this great video discusses five common excuses photographers make and how we can learn to not fall into their traps. Personally, my most common offense is simply making an excuse for not going out to shoot, most often because I feel like it is too much of hassle to lug a heavy camera and lens around. I usually regret it, though, as I like to go on long walks for exercise, and almost always encounter something I wish I had my camera to capture. I got around this by eventually purchasing a decent point and shoot that hangs off my shoulder without bothering me, and it has made a huge difference in keeping me actively engaged with the act of shooting on a daily basis. Of course, that is just what worked for me; something else might be the key for you. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Forbes.
