It’s not about how great something looks but about the life breathed in to it.
When I was new at editing videos my only concern was to make it look cool, but when I viewed it, I knew something was missing. I was trying to make all my videos look like everyone elses. I later learned what made my work different was my perspective. You may see the sunset, but I see you watching it.
Since joining Instagram, I realized this more. I want people who follow me to have an experience of seeing the world through my eyes. At first I had no idea how to use this platform. Those I asked for advise told me I was over thinking it. I saw so many people using it for different things, famous people seem to use it to remind their fans they are alive and still good-looking. But for my little world of 100 people who follow me, I decided I wanted them to see the beauty in the small details of life. To remember its small moments that make the big moments.
When creating something new, I ask myself these questions…
-How do I want people to feel when they view my work?
-What do I want them to think about?
There should be a message behind every creative thing you do. Even annoying advertisements know their point.
So no matter if you’re creating a video, taking a photo or writing, keep in mind how powerful your view of the world is. Because no one see things quite like you.
