When I started shooting landscapes, I kept being frustrated in my inability to make something truly captivating with the scenes I was capturing. No matter if I was shooting coastal scenes, sunsets, mountain ranges, I took pictures from high vantage points, it all resulted in (my opinion) lackluster photos. I wanted to forget my camera and move on to another hobby. But, I held on. I continued to read and research as much as I could and for years struggled with constant practice and discovery in the field. I kept practicing and shooting, minding my frustration and keeping my insecurities in check (i strctly ruled myself not to compare and compete with anyone).
I think my confidence as a photographer came gradually. By the time I could say I was capable at capturing scenes as I visualised and intended them, by the time I got to finally like my photos, I had long forgotten the exact hows and whys I've answered to reach that point. I just tamed my vision and became comfortable in whatever skin I had grown into.
I guess if anything, just follow the truths you have discovered for yourself. Grind it out. As you learn new stuff, keep applying it by doing and practicing and creating. Adjust and recalibrate whatever you have learned. There is no singular truth in art. It is a dynamic, constantly changing thing (what is trending now might be in tomorrow's tacky list). Work, hustle and grind. It doesn't take a single season - it takes years. Art is supposed to be this way. If it were easy, it wouldn't be rewarding. Trust the process.
We woke up at 5:30 am to go visit Kelingking Beach we knew that it is a super attractive spot for tourists and one of the most photographed post for Instagram. When we arrived we got the surprise that we were only 7 people and 4 of them were already down at the beach, we could shoot our photos and after we decided to go down for a swim trail to get to the beach I s not that easy. after a few hours on the beach we went up and at least 200 people where trying to get photos from the top.
