What Jason was telling me was meant to be ENCOURAGING. He was telling me that if I wanted to be creative, I COULD. It took me four years to understand.
So, I want to encourage you, too. If you want to be creative, PRACTICE. Exercise! Try new things... fail at them. Try them again. FAIL AGAIN. Youtube the technique. Try again. And eventually, you're going to get it.
If your daughter comes to you and says "Mom, I want to be the best soccer player in town!" What do you tell her? Do you tell her that you're sorry, but that she wasn't born with soccer skills? OF COURSE NOT. You tell her that she's going to have to work hard. And practice. And learn from people who are better than her and have already mastered the skills she wants to master.
I took some VERY awkward and awful photos in those first years. But you know what? I also took some keepers that I still treausure, despite their imperfections. So, it's the same for you, friend. If you've been wanting to get good at photography. Spend less time WISHING and more time WORKING at it. I promise, it'll pay off.
