Last night around midnight I decided – this is the beginning of my next phase of life. I turned 48 today. It’s a good time to take a look at what I’m doing, what I’ve done, and get moving forward again.
I’ll be changing to a new operating procedure. Life will look a lot different. I’m not sure how all things are going to change, I’ll think about that a lot today. I do know that I’m getting out from in front of this computer. I want to spend less than half the time I currently do on the computer in the future. My ass hurts.
I want to get out and do things. I want to start working my body stiff and sore from doing things outside I’ve not done enough of. I want to forget about writing books for now. I want to ramp up my photography and videography skills to the next level. And the next.
For years I have told people, only the very best survive in the field of photography. For years I haven’t been one them. It’s for lack of trying. I have some skills. Technically I know 95% of what I need to. Back in 1991 I made a decision to sell all my camera equipment I’d bought for freelancing in New York City. I moved to Florida and got my degrees. I’ve done a lot with the computer. I’m getting away from it. My ass hurts.
So this new phase will be Vern starting life as a has-been getting back into phtotography in a big way. Videography will be the real focus, but they’re much the same. Master one and it isn’t such a stretch to master the other.
So, starting today – May 1, 2014, I have changed my life again. I’m going after something I’ve wanted for years. Decades really. There is a lot to learn. A lot to get out and shoot. A lot of money to make so I can get the few tools I need to really knock it out.
