Shoot different from everybody else

When I get started in photography I used to be addicted to social media and used to follow which type of photos could have many likes and, the worst of all, I let likes judge my photos, I became a slave to social media.

I used to follow the style of other photographers and photograph what they photograph .

I used to be like all the masses of photographers on social media and shot like everybody else. I shot for others.

But I’m not like others, I’m a unique individual with different life experiences, different from everybody else. Everybody are different, fuck who says that we -as human beings- are all equal.

Why follow what others are photographing that may not be true to myself?

I’ve tried to shoot different from everybody else and photograph what I like, what’s meaningful to me, to follow my heart, and just shot like a child without having fear of the opinions of others.

In photography I try to not photograph how other people are photographing and try to be myself, only in this way I can truly express myself in my photographs.

  1. I, too, have been in that boat and am finding my own way. Caring less about the likes and such, just doing my own thing.
