Mastering photography - Control (4)

Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs)

Keywords: mastery, art, bgs

In the last, 3rd part we discussed you as being a key factor in the chain to achieve mastery; you, your environment and potentially adding money as an "enhancer" when it comes to learning.

Several readers have been giving their feedback and thoughts in our Café on the first, second and third parts and I invite you to do so as well, after you have read these. Learning together is so much more enjoyable and it plays a big part of what our community is all about.

Of course not, but in this part we're coming back to you, the core and the very foundation of your own possibilities. Processes are key to enhance your photography with one important aspect being time allocation, something you can control for and then execute in a dependable and robust way.

There is very little wiggle room for blame-games here; no shifting of focus to others, to parents, spouses, ex-partners, children, grandchildren, the boyfriend, a stressy job, the full day, the low pay or any other circumstances or reasoning for not spending time on photography that you can come up with, including health or age. You end up with you, the naked photographer.

You and you alone are the core of it all. You are in the seat and only you can take the road, the road of improvement towards mastery.
