When things don’t work out as expected, even small failures in day to day life demotivates us to quite an extent. Like yesterday only I tried a new recipe and it didn’t turn out well and it was like a last push to an already bad day. I am foodie and not only like to taste new varieties of dishes, I enjoy experimenting with recipes and keep hunting for something new for the taste buds.
Apart from food, my recently new venture in photography as a hobby has given me some really good and quality time of my life. Every time I decide to shoot something, it gives me an inner sense that something good is happening and I must say it’s because by shooting photos I am totally disconnected from other thoughts and only creative part of brain is working. Last year I decided to go to exhibition with my friend who is a professional photographer and we went there only for shooting photos. I was skeptical about this at first as I knew that in exhibition people might not like us two shooting photos and give weird expressions but I was wrong.
Both of us entered and exhibition with cameras in hand and from right there I felt a moment of joy and that joy was till the end of our exhibition photo session. I knew it was going to be an awesome day and really it was one of the best time I had. Biggest surprise was people being neutral to camera and not overreacting which gave us some really nice shots of people casually enjoying the exhibition as if there is no camera around. Some people and shop owners do enquired us and asked the purpose of the photo shoot and we manipulated them easily, we made stories and lied to everyone and we enjoyed this too! Some of them thought that we were from newspaper or some TV channel and we agreed to that too. We did this because it was hard to explain the real purpose of our photo shoot to general public and we did not wanted to waste any moment and shoot as much as possible.
At the end we were left with hundreds of photos, each worth a look and some of them were exceptionally good. This was the day when photography gave me really a good dose of motivation and positive energy. I enjoyed that day in exhibition as much as I enjoyed it as a kid. I have decided to take out time from busy schedules and once in a while venture into photography not only as a part of hobby but as a self-mediation for peaceful and positive state of mind.
