As an artist, what are you afraid of?
One thing I have learned over the years is that most artists are their own worst critics. Many times artists are slowed, or even stopped by their own insecurities. Often though, by moving from a place of comfort to the unknown they find they can do amazing things.
Craig Strong, the inventor, and genius behind the Lens baby lenses decided to explore this aspect of artistic life thru a new podcast series, called Moving Through Fear.
As Craig put it:
“The Moving Through Fear Podcast presented by Lensbaby is a space for photographers and creatives to come together to talk about their journey of stepping out of their comfort zone and into their extraordinary greatness. Hosted by Lensbaby Co-Founder Craig Strong, the Moving Through Fear Podcast is for those looking to be connected through the journey of struggle, success, and discovering self. “
If you’ve read much of our Blogs, you know I am a big fan of Lensbaby lenses. The Velvet series lenses will always have a spot in my camera bag. One of the best things about Lensbaby is their philosophy as a company as they not only want to make quality art lenses, but they also want to encourage and inspire people. Everything they do is about stepping out of the box and expressing your unique artistic views.
This podcast was a natural next step. Craig Strong got together with artists and said, “Hey, let’s talk” and these podcasts are that conversation. These podcasts are relaxed and have the feeling of two people chatting over coffee. I encourage you to give them a listen. I love the insight into how other artists see things. I was also thrilled to be a part of this podcast in episode 11. I felt very nervous at the start, but Craig is a great personality and puts you at ease.
