Conditioned to believe
The finality of any experiment
Before its due time
IS the failure
A couple of months ago I started down a path of photographic exploration.
Noticing some issues with image quality (under extreme conditions), I began experimenting with different approaches to reveal what the problem is/was. I’ve been watching/reading MANY advisory tutorials, some good, some not.
As of today, I am still not much better off or confident that I have fixed the issues. After two months of capture-edit-output, capture-edit-output I have folders full of sub standard results. Good results, but still, sub-standard.
But, I have not failed. I have learned. And tomorrow I will stay at it, and the the next day, and the next.
I will tweak my approach each time and test it until I have abolished the issue or concede that it is unfixable.
The latter is likely. Some things just take more time and effort than what was first believed. Learning and exploration has great value. The effort to expose that value is predetermined and I must stay the course if I am to overcome my “failure.”
