It's funny how we downplay our natural talents. One thing that makes me feel insecure and fraudulent is how naturally creative expression has come to me. Nothing that I do as a creative has been learned in a classroom.

I'm completely self taught and sometimes society makes me feel like I can't be a pro without a piece of paper co-signing that I completed the allotted amount of classes and hours.

Don't let that stop your shine. Create. Make things. Pimp the hell out of the brilliant natural talent you possess. Your self taught amateur excellence is somebody's 4 years of education baseline.

As an aside, I started teaching myself photography about 4 or 5 years ago out of necessity (I needed product photos). I'm not a pro but I have yet to photograph a non-photographer that was less than impressed with my work. Shine on!

What is your natural talent? How do you feel about it?
