I once was afraid to ask for help. To ask for help was then a sign of weakness. Then one day a revelation hit me when I realized someone always is over me. It does not matter if I am the subject matter expert, the boss, the Dad or husband. There is always a boss, a customer and of course God watching over me. Since I must ultimately answer to a boss, knowing their needs was not weakness but a strength. So why was I still afraid to ask for directions, corrections and instruction?
The solution seemed pretty self evident after further reflection. Try to get it right the first time, corrected in the first edit for follow on publishing, and to keep learning so my problem solving capabilities improved before a new problem arose. To accomplish those goals I needed directions, corrections and instruction to improve my imperfect self. Technical manuals, practice, improved listening skills, and learning more about the Lord began to aid my growth as a person in many ways.
So get over the pride of self, and fear of perceived weakness. Get direction, correction and instruction. You’ll be a better person for it, and a whole lot easier to live with!
P.S. Fujifilm X-T1 in Savannah, GA. Raw file processed in Captue One Pro with a few minor edits. I highly recommend trying this RAW developer and processor out. It is a superior product to both Aperture and Lightroom for most Raw conversions…digital asset management no so much so far.
