Each Photo You Take is an “Attempt”

Each photo you shoot doesn’t need to be a masterpiece.

Each photo you take is simply an “attempt” — a swing at bat.

The more you swing the bat, the more likely you are to hit a home run.

Avoid perfectionism

Don’t let perfectionism get the best of you. Sometimes when we want to make really good photos, we don’t. We make the best photos, when we just let go, and “go with the flow.”

So enjoy yourself in your photography. Don’t put pressure on yourself.

Just click, and “attempt” to make good photos in photography.

There is no “failure” in photography, only “attempts.”

Keep attempting to become the best photographer you can.
