dis·sat·is·fied  (ds-sts-fd) adj.
Feeling or exhibiting a lack of contentment or satisfaction.

That pretty much sums up how I feel now. To me, being discontent was akin to ingratitude. If you were grateful for what you had you would be satisfied.

But my discontentment stems from something else. I am not happy with where I am in photography. There are always new things to learn. And not enough time. Or maybe I just do not make the time for it. Work has a large role in my life. So does church, family and friends (not in that order). Music also take a (small) role. So where does that leave photography?

Recently, while I was on a holiday with my family, I was all fired up with the gorgeously rustic, old houses I saw! I saw lots of inspiration...until I looked at my models (family, duh) and the clothes they wore. I killed my inspiration. They were dressed in the most grubby clothes they could bring along.

I then concentrated on flowers. Hence the picture on top.

One thing I learned? Never be content where you are in photography. Discontent will make you create better pictures.

Too much textures can be a nice touch. Play around. Here are some links for FREE textures that you will love.

Trying out something new...

Roll your mouse over the picture to see the before and after!

Life has been crazy around. My picture folder for May 2010 has been curiously empty. I need to do something about it. :D

"I Am Your Creation

"I am Your Creation"
"The heavens show the genius of
Your master skill;
The earth displays the beauty of
Your perfect will.
What precision is displayed,
In this vast world You have made.
How can I, a child of dust,
Deserve the love of Your touch?

You formed me in my mother's womb,
According to Your plan;
You made each tiny finger,
And You made each little hand.
I am Your Creation;
You shaped each hidden part.
And this shall be my greatest joy-
To praise You.....
From my heart.

Some things about my life
I cannot understand,
But still I trust the wisdom
Of Your master plan.
Though the way I cannot see,
Though my path confuses me,
I will trust what You've begun;
Your work of love is not done."

Texture Fun

It is amazing what a texture like this can do to a plain picture. I just pulled it over and changed the blending mode to Overlay 100%.

Get out of that rut!!!

I have (so sadly) fallen into a rut. A boring rut, that is. I have been so set on capturing 'proper' pictures that I have forgotten that how to capture spontaneous moments.

I'm stuck.

I need to get out of it. Please tell me how.

I am not the 'get that picture technically correct' sort of person. According to to my personality results, I don't pay attention to details. And its true. I don't. That's what pulls me down.

I can remember all about the sun...and to avoid the harsh rays. But when I get caught up with shooting pictures, I only realize it later. But at least its not uncorrectable.

Before I go, I leave you with a tip: when you go on photoshoots, wear good shoes. It protects. Your feet. And your feet will thank you. Trust me, I learned that the hard way.
