Often what we consider mistakes can bring some kind of benefit to our lives. In photography, for example, there are plenty of rules that we can decide to follow if we want to, but shooting with an open mind can give us surprising results. Always leave a margin for mistakes, as this can lead to a more personal and unique interpretation of the world around us. Photographs can convey deep feelings and emotions, as long as we are able to freely express ourselves through the lens. The same thing happens when we learn any new skill…We have to experiment and make mistakes to learn something and if someone tells us what to do, is usually not enough, as we have to find our way around it.
