HORSE PRINT | CHANGES
Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Early evening.
Recently I have been trying to change my patterns of thinking so that I can create new results. My patterns are so repetitious that I don’t allow my self to do new things. One of the things I want to change is having an open mind.
I normally use a particular lens to photograph horses. I have convinced myself to believe that this lens gives the best results.
This time I purposely left my normal lens at the hotel. When I reached the location, I was having a panic attack. I had convinced myself that I had made a big mistake. I almost called off the shoot. Reluctantly I picked up the new lens and started to photograph. This lens was a lot smaller, less heave and I didn’t have to kill my self carrying it. At the end of the shoot I realized the results were the same and I could move freely.
The key to breaking my pattern was not giving my self a choice. Sometimes we do things we feel are right, but only if we allow ourselves to try new ways the results could be the same or better with less effort.
