Cross the Line

As a creative person, we are often pushed to do what the client is wanting us to do.   I believe that we should always give them exactly what they want, plus a lot more, but at times we are limited to shooting on simple backgrounds, boring locations or just not enough time.   Once in a while, you must cross the line and do something for yourself!  It’s your job to express your feelings on an image or video, but other wise you are just a button pusher.   Sure it takes time, plus some money to make it happen, but it is always worth the cost in the end.   Just think if you never did one thing for yourself where would you be now?

All creatives should cross the line at least once everyday to make sure we are still alive.  Keep crossing the line!
