As stated in my last blog I am awaiting feedback from a select few friends. So far I’ve received one short paragraph. That paragraph was important though. You see I knew deep down inside one image
didn’t work. Yes it it does have some merit and I do believe it can be saved but I didn’t act on that feeling. Instead, I sent off my rough cut for feedback with the unfixed image and consequently my fears were validated and was even given a suggestion how to fix it. This feeling, knowing that something is not right when it is perhaps somewhat right, maybe even “right enough” that it gets a pass from the general viewer, has a name and that is “talent.”
Did I ignore my talent, or do I just not have control of it yet? I do not know, but I do know it is there and I must pay attention to it. Have you payed attention to your talent today?
