Get Out and Shoot… Automotive Inspiration from The Daily Driver Project

Recently I bought a new camera. A major upgrade from what I had from before and a large investment in my love of photography.

The other thing that has come with this purchase is the learning curve I have to get past. Changed brands and upgraded to a pro level camera.

One of the things I know about myself is I learn best by doing. That is why I went out the week I got the camera and shot a few cruise nights. They didn’t get posted to my website, but they did go up on my social media.

Not all of them were good, but that is what happens when you are learning.

With any of this, no matter what you are doing, you have to learn to be self-aware. What does this mean?

You have to look internally to understand who you are and what you like and what works for you. Especially in regards to happiness. I know that I learn best by doing the task over just reading or watching a video about it. But this self-awareness does not just have to be about learning, it can be throughout all parts of your life.

A good example of this would be my nephew Izack who just graduated from Art School. Check out last week’s article to see some of his work. At his young age, he is aware enough to know that he shouldn’t work in a corporate type environment like a larger toy company. He went to school for toy design. He understands that he is a better fit in a boutique/smaller type company.

Take the time to understand yourself and learn your boundaries, strengths, weaknesses and what generally makes you tick. These understandings can bring a calm and general happiness to your life.

Also remember to work on all of these things and understand that they change daily, weekly and yearly and be open to these changes.
