The only reason people need love is because there is an emptiness in your brain that developed while you were an infant that is used to the over abundance of attention and love you received from your parents at that age, this part of your brain stayed in that mode so you forever will feel incomplete without the same amount of love and attention you received as an infant. This is the same reason why people feel complete through love. Love, when it is the same kind your parents gave to you (genuine & unconditional) is most beneficial to you, making your brain complete (other areas of the brain must not be lacking also) therefore, making you the strongest possible, mental strength wise. This is why love is a painkiller (proven by science). Love also has the same postive effects as cocaine (also proven by science) for those who were not aware that their life was lacking someone/thing then are hit with the sensation of your brain becoming that much stronger and happier. So, no true love is not magical. It is just finding someone who likes you enough to care for you as a mother would with a child.
I have a photography job, today. Freelance gigs & a legit 9-5 photography job. I choose not to take photo classes because a class cannot teach you creativity, everything a class can teach I can read or watch online on my own. I love living in the age of google and the internet for knowledge and I take advantage of it. I already create work outside of the bedroom & I very rarely take photos of the streets surrounding my home. What I post on this blog is far less than half of the photos I take. I’m very busy and have not had the time to upload everything onto tumblr. Also, for my tumblr blog I post photos I have that will attract the most followers to spread my name. I put more of my work on an actual photo sharing websites such as Flickr. I do not own photoshop at the moment. I work with the resources I have living on a tight budget. I do use photoshop at work, however. Most of the photos on this blog were done with free online editing programs. The tattoo is a perfect circle, that is not poorly done at all? I’m confused as to why you would think this since there are no flaws. The shape is distorted in the image because it is an abstract image if you couldn’t already tell. I do not own expensive gear, for a while my external flash was one from the 1980’s that suprised everyone that it could work and today my difuser is a piece of plastic ducktaped onto my camera. I’m all for DIY gear when it can be done properly with the same quality product. I never shoot on automatic, not too sure where that comment came from either. For every photo I take, I adjust all the settings. I have to disagree with you on my photos lacking focus, because I am a perfectionist in adjusting the macro focus. My photos may lack your own individual interest, I have no idea what you’re interested and to put this in the nicest way, I don’t care. I take photos of what I’m interested in, my photography = my eyes. If people happen to have something in common with me & like the photo also (which many do hence my jobs) then thats great. I take advantage of my resources, I know and journey my city inside and out and have my camera with me all the time. Best of luck to you as well. I have never thought about MoMa for my photography, if they choose to display it, wonderful. As long as I get to make the visions in my head come out into photographs that satisfy me I’ll be happy.
