Lensbaby Manifesto Struggle


We Struggle as We Find Our Visual Voice

Its easy to be burdened with self-doubt when we experience fear, disappointment, or failure. But, arent the highs and lows equal parts of the process? Doesnt personal struggle often lead to growth, learning, and improvement? We need to remind ourselves, and the rest of the world, that its okay to take risks. Its okay to try new things and admit we dont have everything figured out -- as long as we can fall down, get back up, and keep going with more experience than before.

How do you embrace struggle as you find your visual voice?
