I can't stand people who only blame others for being better, yet refuse to do anything about their own lives other than whining away.

i agree & when the chance come to them , u can't see them move. I meet this kind of people all the time. It's not our fault they don't wanna be better.

Personally I call you to become the best... But the best - by not delights of admirers...By photo...But to receive such level of merge to a photo which was at Leni Riefenstahl - for this purpose it is necessary much (this my respect for its skill and the difficult life lived by her - she was favourite Hitler, then of her hated for it and up to the end of her days recollected it, but all cinematographers and photographers respect she for its creativity)
Concerning the creativity - I am simple " keep the form " and all...It is not interesting to me " to be exchanged for trifles " - I simply search for that "condition" which will enable me to create that will be really interesting... I always respect to of photo-masters, but there will be a day, when I shall go " against them " to challenge their place on "Olympus"... It simply tactics...If I cannot make it, then I only " an empty place in a photo "...It " the wolf rain "...

Don't care about them...
People who knows just jealousy makes no improvement of their own!
You're good because you pay alot of effort!!!
This is what they didn't think about and try to do~

it's still something that I can't find the way how to deal with. I usually tell myself that life without any idiots would be just boring.Right?^^
Take care.

Sadly, I was one of those complainers. My laziness had gotten the best of me for a long time. There was always an excuse to not create what I spend 1000s of hours thinking about...I need a stronger light, i need hair/mua, i need models, i need assistants. Lame excuses that got me nowhere.

Those days are gone. It's time to get busy.

Yeah I feel you. I hate when people talk about how they wish they could do the things I'm doing as if I had some sort of huge advantage or gift that they don't and so they give up without even trying.
For me if I see someone better than me, I just think, well they can do it, so if I work hard than I can do it too.

Its always easier to complain than to do =)

A lot of people seem to think that creativity hits you out of the blue. This is in my experience, never the case. If i sit in my sofa looking at some stupid tv-show, chances are pretty much nil that i will get the big enlightening creativity hit and go make the next masterpiece. It just doesnt happen.

In my opinion you need to exercise and work your creativity. Start doing istead of complaining. Sure, it may be hard to start but thats where experience comes in. No professional (regardless of it being creative design, fashion design, photography or whatever) sits down and tries to squeeze out creativity like a overly constipated muppet. They start working with the experience they have. Start planning for the work, what should it say, what colors should it have, what forms/sillouhetes should we use, do we have any brief from the client? etc.

There are a whole lot of things you can start to organize before any creativity is needed to get the juices flowing. In fact, the entire procedure of sketching in art is generally a way to "mechanically" jumpstart the creativity in you.

So by starting to DO then creativity will COME. If you just sit and wait for creativity to hit you, you will be waiting for a long time. And if you are smart, you will use that wait to practise and learn those valuable planning and design / work methodology skills that will help you actually get creative =)

PS.
Got the book now Jingna, it looks lovely. Though personal preference i would have avoided 2 page spreads on the soft-back cover as 1/3.rd of the image gets lost unless you break the back due to the curvature of the pages. Ds.
