Easy Steps to Learn Professional Photography

Learning Professional Photography is one of my all-time favourite goals even though I never pursued it properly. There had always been something missing; either the tools, time, passion, energy, eagerness… etc.

So I though why try to take it seriously this time and perhaps share my eagerness and enthusiasm with those who, like me, had always loved photography, yet never attempted to take it seriously and learn it like professionals do.

I laid down sort of an outline plan to learn photography, easily and will jot it down in in bullet points for me to find them easy to follow and for others to also consider them.

Here you go;

How can one take easy steps to take professional photos and really really really enjoy photography.

1- First and as I usually do with any action; set your intention clear and stay hopeful through your journey of learning.

2- Put a timeline plan for your goal of Learning Professional Photography, meaning; select a date, let it be after a month or two, depends on you, and chose it to be the date by which you will have learned all about Professional Photography and can easily take perfect shots with your camera.

3- Buy a decent digital SLR camera, it doesn’t have to be very expensive but check models that have sufficient number of options you can use and feel them helpful.

4- Get familial with your camera, hold it a lot, explore it, along with reading the user manual.

5- Do your own online search and check online educational platforms such as Linda or even video tutorials.

6- Always remind yourself of the day when you have achieved this pleasant goal of being a good photographer and taking the shorts you always wanted to take.

7- Watch as many good photos as possible, accessible on many online photography platforms.

8- Connect to a community of photographers of your choice and talk to them a lot, you can even as for guidance every now and then.

9- Practice, Practice, Practice.

10, Make your camera accessible all the time and take it with you wherever you go, this will help you practice more and develop faster.

11- Make an online portfolio, where you can write down basic information about yourself and selective photos you took each week. You can filter that later on as you wish, but it’s a good way of tracking your development and seeing your dream coming to fruition.

12- Remember, the more hours and sincerity you put to your pursuit, the easier you will succeed.

Enjoy your pursuit of photography and wish me luck.

Stay blessed,
maha.

You’re A Living Magnet

The secret behind the current paradigm shift the world’s been undergoing in recent years as a result of the sweeping popularity of The Law of Attraction is that everybody has started sensing that their thoughts, moods and state of mind are attracting and bringing forth incidents and happenings pretty much of the same nature as they are.

Meaning, if a person is worried of a particular matter, it begins unfolding. If he’s thinking too much of a particular person he may encounter him or meet him accidentally, or rather what may seem accidentally.

This led people to start believing more and more in the so-called Law of Attraction and embracing it as a cosmic law that should be respected.

You may want to reconsider the way you think and feel and the thoughts you focus on and nurture as they may lead to and attract more like happenings that you may go through whether you like it or not.

You may even attract to your being thoughts you don’t really like by resisting them so much that you think of them more than those you like.

So you may be astonished how come you hated a matter and kept thinking of how abhorrent it may be yet encounter it. Well, the fact of the matter is that resisting a matter may be a catalyst to bringing it to fruition rather than pushing it away.

So what should one do if he or she thought of a negative matter or a fear for example? Well, instead of thinking of it too much or even resisting and fearing it, you may want to avoid it and disregard it altogether as an unimportant matter that doesn’t mean much to you. In other words, keep it low profile instead of enlarging it and resisting it.

To make it simple and easy for you. You may push away a negative incident, by pushing away the thought of it. How to do that? By placing yourself on a different intellectual frequency, that’s less negative and fearful.

Alway keep thoughts that feel good and taste good. Feeling good in itself is a good training to stay in your vortex of creating good events and bringing them to your life. And the opposite is true.

This is a simple yet a new way of shedding light on the merits of the law of attraction.

Yes we create our own reality and only God accepts our wish to create and gives us the permission to!

Beware of your thoughts. Refine them and this is your only way to live well!
And remember, there’s always something good out there waiting for you to live it, you just need to live the thought of it as a living reality and attract it to your life “as a living magnet”! Yes, you’re a living magnet!

And again,
I’m not bound to win, but I’m bound to be true.

The Dilemma of Mapping Your Life

Mapping your life is an endless task, one that you keep on doing every now and then and whenever any change creeps into your life.

Mapping your life is distributing your life onto the several areas it harbours, such as your work, your social life, family commitments, house chores and the like.

When single, a woman used to map her life, assigning portions of her time, thinking, and energy to her own personal time, sports, work life and career, big family and and perhaps travels. Getting married remapping her life becomes a necessity to assign a portion of her life to her husband and house chores. Becoming a mother, another remapping of her life is also needed to assign another portion of her life, perhaps the biggest of it all, to her baby, and it continues to be the first priority and task consuming much of her life for a long time, if not forever.

Why is mapping one’s life important?
Well, this hectic task is needed to alleviate the burden of stopping everyday and thinking if your giving each area of your life its due attention and care. Setting that matter in by mapping, as in really mapping your life inside your mind and on paper, makes things clearer and silences the chaos that will keep haunting your mind and swallowing your energy each time you try to answer the persisting question of, are you handling your life well?!

Do map your life and life peacefully!

Letter from a Lifeful to a Lifeless

If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
