There are many ways to learn things—some things in life we pick up pretty quickly, others not so much. As we learn our craft and art in photography, we can take all sorts of shortcuts. In some cases, we should stand on the shoulders of the photographers that came before us to learn, extend, and develop our understanding of our work. And in today’s world, we can also find a two-minute video on anything to teach us about something. In today’s podcast, I talk about how most of the time, the time we put into something offers more rewards than just the desired goal. The journey is, in fact, more important than the destination.

As always, I hope you and yours are safe, and please remember to keep safe and wear your mask.
