to remain youthful (by Ana Luísa Pinto [Luminous Photography])
[Every week, there will be a letter, going through the order of the alphabet. Every Monday, I’ll open the Chambers Compact Dictionary and I’ll randomly pick a page of the said letter. Out of that page, I’ll randomly pick a word. And every Friday, there will be a picture based on that word. 
Welcome to the Alphabet Tales. ]
Week #25
Letter YYoung, young, adj. not long born; in early life; in the first part of growth; inexperienced.

This is an ode to the old me.
I miss photographing like this — like I did four or five years ago, when any moment was an excuse for a self-portrait, when every emotion was raw and I wasn’t afraid of putting it on the camera; when my own expectations were much, much lower, and that gave me the freedom to create, to just create, without worrying about a standard of quality or what my peers would think of me.
I was at a workshop, the other day, with the fantastic Marina Lomar, and she mentioned overcoming the phase of your career where you photograph for your peers instead of photographing for you, or for your clients. You worry more about the opinions of the other photographers than you do about your own feelings regarding that specific piece of work, and that tears you down. Fortunately, the four people who were doing the workshop along with me had gone through that phase and come out on the other side. I haven’t. I’m not happy about it, but I’m not ashamed to say it, either — I still photograph for my peers and that stilts my work, my freedom to let the thoughts flow. But at the same time, it’s not something you can just turn off. It takes time.
One step at a time, right?

“Many people believe every age marks something significant, that you should accomplish a certain something by a certain time. Your first kiss, losing your virginity, getting married. Learning to drive, knowing what you want to be, succeeding in your goals. But that’s not true. Let things just happen. Make sure you’re ready. Stay wise. Give yourself time to develop. There is no rush to live.”
