To be "that talented"

>> Thursday, April 1, 2010

I have two new favourite photographers.

Erin Jean and Kelle Hampton.

 I've been practicing photography a lot, lately, so I've started following photographers who inspire me. Well, part of me is inspired, the other part of me wants to throw in the towel right now because I know I'll never be that good.

Kind of like when I listened to Ani DiFranco throughout my teen years, when I was really into song-writing and poetry. I ended up getting so much better at writing honest, cutting prose because of her, but at the same time I kind of felt like she must've sold her soul to the devil to be that talented.

I very rarely come across someone whose talent makes me so breathless with awe and envy that I can barely stand it, but these photographers definitely do. And it doesn't help that the second one is also a blogger and incredibly talented writer as well. 

Thankfully I'm too busy to indulge much envy these days, so I'll just pass these gems along. I hope you're inspired and if you are, let me know what you think.

Oh, and check out some Ani Difranco while you're at it. I'm pretty sure there can only be one "world's most brilliant lyricist" in the world, and she's it.
