As a artist who uses a medium like photography, a medium that that is so instant, it's easy to lose the value of your art. For me to shoot an image it take on average only 1/100 of second. Maybe I take four different angles and the whole thing takes fifteen seconds. After this I move on to the next thing. Shooting an image takes almost no time at all. When I go to edit that image, I spend only a couple minutes or less. A couple minutes to export and post to Instagram and I've spent only 5 minutes on that image. Compare this to the painter. They must set up their easel and find the right angle, right lighting, and right composition before they even think about painting something. Painting it might take 2 hours or it might take 20 or 200. By the end they have created a valued piece of art. Something that they have invested time and effort into. They have invested much more time that I did into my photograph. It doesn't have to be this way. Think about the last photo you took. Did you just take it like me or did you look at it like the painter? Wake up early, drive while the sun is still down, get to your location and find your angle. Watch the sun come over the horizon and wait for the best light. Wait to take that photo like you only have one chance like the painter. Don't take photos, paint pictures with a camera.
