When nothing seems to be going right, it’s easy to lose your perspective. When you’re stressed out, says Burnie Glenn, CPP, let yourself float for awhile. You might not be a world-famous photographer, but remind yourself that what you do is important to the people you photograph, Glenn says. “Sometimes it takes a blow to the head with a celestial two-by-four to get the message that it’s time to move on and find something better.” It’s a matter of attitude and faith in yourself, he adds. “The Titanic was built by professionals; Noah’s ark was built by amateurs.”
Burnie Glenn, a past president of the Dallas Professional Photographers Association, and his wife, Marcia, own and operate Glenn’s Photo Studio, specializing in weddings and portraits, in Dallas, Texas.
