Do what you love

Do what you love, originally uploaded by ZackTwin.
‘Do what you love.’

It’s easier to talk than do. The sentence and the meaning seems to be simple but it’s complicated, you know.

Because it is different between what you really love to do and how you really want to do what you love. Let me tell my opinion. I really love to read any kind of writing since I was young. I can remember every single word if I really like the writing. When I was in middle school, I read a play (Yay Thel Pya Zat) from my elder sister’s high school textbook, I like it very much. When I had to learn that play as my lesson in my high school, I started to hate it. Because I cannot enjoy reading it, I need to memorize and rewrite as what teacher told me to. I wished to read to enjoy and analyze myself rather than I am asked to.

I realized that same feeling apply to my photography too. I love photography but I do not enjoy taking photos at events or model shooting much. That’s why most of my friends complained that their photos, taken by me, are not great. I agree with them because I don’t enjoy taking photos with restriction. I need to open my mind more.

Even so, I have done photo shooting for 3 wedding receptions and 3 birthday events with my humble D60. This photo was taken during one of room-mate-cum-brother-cum-friend’s ROM (Registry of Marriage) ceremony.

I do love photography but I don’t like to take photos for events because I feel that it restricts me a lot. ‘Do what you love’ is not simple as you see, right?
