I know how to use Lightroom and Photoshop already because I work in marketing and communications but he's definitely teaching me more in-depth Lightroom techniques. I kind of got discouraged after my third shoot (short blonde hair girl) because after I edited the shoot, Jon came back and showed me how he would have edited some of them and it was techniques I hadn't even thought of using. So it made me question if I was really good enough to try to be shooting the types of shots I'm doing.
I'm extremely inspired by music and pop culture and am utilizing some of those inspirations in the types of shots I set up. I keep looking for photographers who are just starting out who are doing the types of shoots I'm doing and I can't find any. I'm just finding extremely experienced and talented photographers that I can't really compare my first two weeks of shooting to haha.
You must never question yourself like that. You are good enough, what the correct question is how do I get what I want to achieve. question others, question, question that is how you learn. Yes you most definately are good enough.
Btw also, ultimately you are the artist, if your finished image is what you want, do not be dissuaded by what other 'experts' have to offer. Your finished article, as in writing is what satisfies you. You will always eventually find some one else it satisfies. If you are shooting for another, ie a paid shoot, then what satisfies them is the correct answer.
You go girl, show all these fuddy duddies (including me) what you are made of. Best wishes ever, Chris
