Tackling your insecurity in a safe environment
Safety is no longer so common in this weird world. Many of us experience that too, even online when you innocently share a photo and ask for tips.
We are then beaten about our 'bad picture' where 'everything is wrong with'. But these so-called experts don't give you any tips that will help you.
It's the cancel culture. Because of our photo we are being cancelled. Thrown out the door. Bye bye, and never come back...
Your self-confidence gets a huge blow from this, how heartless can people be behind their computer. Do they sometimes want to feel better than you by putting you down?
From day 1 I have said: I will not participate in this! I want a safe environment for everyone. Where constructive tips are welcome and where everyone dares to post any photo. And where you can be proud of your photo.
You can only really learn in a safe environment. And that's why I have the KickStart Facebook group set up.
More than 1.800 people like you and me who enjoy photography and who encourage each other and thus give your motivation for our beautiful hobby a boost.
Yesterday my organization was inspected and I received the status 'Recognised training company' and that has also given me extra motivation to be there for you.
An important aspect is a safe learning environment and recognition for this is important to me. But this is also important for you.
And to give you an extra motivation, here are some wonderful spring tips:
1. Shoot with a wide-angle lens or your lens at 18 mm close to the ground obliquely so that you get a lot of air in your photo
2. Shoot a nice tree with backlight so that the sun is visible through the branches behind the tree and watch the tree become a great silhouette
3. Go to the beach and enjoy a beautiful sunset.. and oh yes, take some beautiful pictures in between. And preferably when there are some clouds because that gives a more beautiful sunset than a tightly clear sky.
And do you also want to join our unique Facebook group? Then press here and ask to join. Then I'll let you in with all my love.
(You have to apply for membership so that not all negative people walk into the group and mess things up)
