Two and a half months in I decided to start sharing the experiences of my photographic journey.
For the last 2 and a half months I have been busy to reclaim my skills and especially my eye for photography. I photographed every day, selected and edited the images and finally managed to post an image on Instagram that I was happy with.
My motivation and learning curve was extremely high, I could almost physically feel the daily progress I was making. And at the same time, the idea of not only sharing this experiment in pictures, but also writing about it, solidified in me. That's why I decided to create my own website and start a blog.
When I made this decision last Friday, everything happened very quickly. Over the weekend I set up the website and was blown away how fast and easy it was with the help of a web-building kit. It's unbelievable how much these technologies have developed in the past 5 years, when I think back to how much time and money it took to create an online presence of this quality not so long ago. Even if this means that web design is no longer a future profession, it is fantastic for creators to have such tools at their fingertips.
How do we define ourselves and our future role as designers?
This was an up-close experience of how rapid digitization frees creators from the constraints of bringing their ideas to life, allowing them to really focus on the creative part of their work.
On the other hand, this development undoubtedly raises questions: How do we define ourselves and our future role as designers? But that is another story, which I will address in a future article.
My goal is to post weekly about my photographic journey and to put the findings and experiences into a larger context. If you find yourself here, feel free to join me on my adventure.
