I love my job, but I hate photography. However - More and more, online business IS a photography driven media. Of course it is - I don’t know why I would have ever thought different. We are the new catalog of the world. Only – we create the product but don’t know how to take pictures.
I have stumbled through Etsy tutorials, I have a nice camera, I play with lights, papers, stones, wood….. Thankfully for the most part, people say my pictures are ok….. And most people, that would be great. Not me…. I want them to be amazing – I want to be the shop that everyone wants on their team. I have no idea why this bothers me so much, my business has been increasing every month – but for some reason – this picture thing is eating at me.
So today, (I have to admit) …. I bought a light box that I can’t afford. WTF am I thinking!!! (sorry for my PG readers) I was wondering that and I typed my PayPal password in and sent the payment.
To make it all worse, I wanted the one that was 2 times as much. If this one doesn’t make me a photographic superstar, next month I will be buying the more expensive box.
PS – I tried making some awesome dragon eggs and they caught fire and blew up…… I never give up. Fear not – there are some amazing Talismans’ in our future.
