Creativity is subjective. Being around other like minded writers for 5 + years — i'm including the brief time in 12th grade when I was dedicated to the Yearbook Club — I've found that everyone isn't required to love my ideas. It took me some time to be okay with this because I'm horrible with constructive criticism.
Allen (aka the boyfriend) plays a big part in the content I create both here and on YouTube. And since we're both passionate creatives we tend to butt heads.
He takes most of my photos for the blog. He likes to shoot they way he feels will work and make me look good. This is followed by my complaints about the choice of angles and other little details. Not because I hate his point of view. Actually, I value his opinion more than anyone else's. He's happens to be a very talented song-writer and the way he thinks is close to if not genius. It's more of a aesthetic issue.
While shooting from below works for 5 Inch and Up and My Eyes Are Hungry. It's just not how I structure my photos. It's also not my most flattering angle lol.
The day we took these he summed up our creative clash with a few simple words, "You got to let people do what they want." If you want the job done sometimes you gotta let people show you how they want things. And although this may not stick and we'll be back to the same routine soon, we both understand one thing.... In the end I am ALWAYS right.
...Or at least that how I took it!
