New Ventures

“Nothing ventured, nothing gained.”

That’s the old saying, right?

So many people get stuck in the same old routine. They do the same thing the same way over and over and over again. The predictability is nauseating. Change is not only not easy for some people, it’s downright impossible!

Photographers run the risk of repeating this tired routine. Remember when digital cameras first came out? The laggards and naysayers were spouting off frequently about how digital photography was not true photography. They claimed that digital prints would never rival film prints or even be in the same class. Time has proven them wrong, and yet some extremely reluctant photographers refuse to change their methods.

So, what about you? Are you willing to try something new? Are you an early adapter or a sluggard, I mean laggard? Do you prefer to keep doing things the same old way or do you try new ways of doing things?

I have recently been doing some new things to stretch me and there are more new things forthcoming in the near future for me. I embrace these new endeavors as exciting possibilities to learn new things. After all, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained!”
