When we first started taking pictures, you would go out just to take pictures.you were practicing. Then all of a sudden: as we got busier were constantly taking pictures for weddings and sessions,

we no longer had the drive to go take pictures outside of our sessions. We stopped pushing ourselves because you were producing images our clients loved. you knew that the quality of our work was good, but we also felt the little wrench in our gut telling us that something was missing.

you needed to practice. To find set aside time with the intention purpose of developing better images. So you came up with a plan to do just that.

Practice Makes Perfect !

  1. Find something specific to Practice

Unlike our time practicing when you first just started getting to know us cameras, you knew that this practice time had to have (at least most of the time) a specific thing you were setting out to accomplish.

Maybe you noticed that us photos with a certain lens haven’t been turning out how you wanted, or us reception lighting was missing that little spark you ve been searching for. Whatever the reason,

you do research on the subject to come up with some techniques to try during us practice sessions.

  1. SCHEDULE time to go Practice

There is something about writing something down that just makes it set in stone.you knew that if you didn’t write it in us calendar, there was a good chance you would overlook us practice + fall back into the vicious cycle you just got out of.

Depending on the subject you plan to work on you set an appropriate time (30 min, 1 hour, or whatever you can fit in!) during the appropriate time of day (you can’t practice sunset pictures at noon!) + then you put them in us synced iCalendar with reminders so you CAN’T forget.

  1. Develop a thought out plan for your Practice Time

To make the most out of our practice time, you come up with a thorough game plan. you knew that if you had a very specific goal you were trying to accomplish for a given practice session,

you us far more likely to achieve it! If you just went out to take pictures,you would most likely get good images become better (a tiny bit anyways), but you wouldn’t have solved the initial problem you us rying to solve.

If, during the practice session, a new subset of problems arises, you make a note go back to step 1 so you can better master that subject.

4.     Challenge Yourself

I strongly believe that the only way to get better at something is to push yourself to the point of discomfort. Now, I’m not talking about running on a sprained ankle! When you step outside your comfort zone, your brain is pushed into a new way of problem solving + you can often come up with a solution unique to you!

Practice provides you with a stress free environment to push your creative boundaries.

5. Reward ourselves if we accomplish what we set out to do Come up with some sort of reward system for achieving you goals. Maybe you really like ice cream. I mean, you all like ice cream right? Grab some on the what home!

If you reward yourself for accomplishing something, you are helping your brain to automate good habits you are all creatures of habit! If youcan find something us brain likes, even though it is borderline bribery,you are helping to reinforce the habit loop ; )

  1. Stay positive if we don’t get it right the first time

If we don’t nail it the first time that’s perfectly ok! This is WHY you practice! Don’t let failure deter we from practicing. Often times when you set out to solve a problem, a handful of other problems arise.

Although the problem may not have been solved, you were able to find out that it was a bit more complex than we thought! Now, we have the opportunity to break the original problem into smaller, more manageable problems.

Eventually, if we stick with it, us will be a master at anything you put the time into!

you know this post got a little lengthy, but I really believe that what we are trying to get better at, or the problem we are trying to solved, can be tamed if you attack it with a game plan practice, practice, practice! Sometimes the most rewarding work is the work that you have to roll up our sleeves to do. The work that the is no easy what out for.
