Human side of the Christmas season



“After all these years, I am still involved in the process of self-discovery. It’s better to explore life and make mistakes than to play it safe. Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.” — Sophia Loren

This is the time of the year when people skills and self discovery play a major role in the enjoyment of the season. Photography is more than setting the correct aperture on your camera and making sure the lighting is flattering. It involves interaction with other human beings different from yourself. It involves an appreciation of the fact that we are all different. Patience, perfection and performance are part of the scenario. Making people feel comfortable before the lens is an acquired kill. Helping young children feel comfortable in a stressful situation helps you develop as a person and a professional. A time to not only develop your photos but also yourself as well. — gc
