There is lots to be learned from studying some of the masters of photography. Study them, see how they did it. You’ll notice they all spent LOTS of time mastering their craft…

I know how it feels to have somebody steal your things and it’s not a nice feeling at all.

I’m glad you sound like you have the dedication and the inspiration to make photography a serious passion of yours in the future.

All I can say is PRACTICE, PRACTICE, and PRACTICE some more. Shoot every single day.

Live it, and breathe it.

You will do well.

Thanks for your submission. I look forward to seeing you progress through the course.
