This is me in the moment in all my glory…feeling a little stressed & worried about.where to make my next move and how. I’ve worked so hard to move towards my goals and dreams but sometimes I feel a bit discouraged like I’m not getting anywhere despite my best efforts. I want to succeed; I want to please. So right now, I’m just trying to figure everything out and maybe I need have some more faith… Photo credit @joecow #myself #nate #utahphotographer #contemplation ~ via Instagram:

Dear friends. I will try and practice daily as a photographer and artist and continue to post to Instagram. I’m also going to try and sell prints weekly down here in Southern Utah to raise the rest of the money I need to fulfill rewards and honor my obligation to all of my Kickstarter backers who helped me on my project. If anyone has advice on how I could market my photos better and it could further the efforts to achieve this goal, I would appreciate your advice? All I need to set aside is about $2,000 to finish up the rest of my Kickstarter rewards! I’ve been sending a few out a week but it’s not fast enough! I’ve had a lot of requests from people that want to buy prints from me as well from people who I have met for the first time: #ZionNationalPark. ~ via Instagram:

I think amateur photographers need to stop chasing after the latest and greatest auto focus lenses and start focusing on their craft more…I didn’t start really practicing my photography until I learned the art of manual focusing old legacy lenses on digital mirrorless bodies using cheap adaptors to hook these archaic old lenses to modern digital sensors; I’m talking about lenses made clear back in the 50s through the 1990s!!! I came to realize these lenses had more character than perfected digital lenses and that this same “old school” flavor appeared in my photos as well adding even more charm to my compositions. I’m no longer sold on the latest auto focus craze. Instead, I focus on manual lenses and my AF lenses seem to take a back row seat. I’m about ready to fully commit myself to manual focus only photography because it has taught me so much more through art and practice! #brycecanyonnationalpark ~ via Instagram:
