Do you ever feel weighed down by a big photography project coming up? You have to meet the clients, find an assistant, find a location, set up the shoot, take the photographs, and then edited all the photos.

  1. When it comes to being productive with online projects, it’s easy to be discouraged by little or no feedback on work. There were plenty of times where I stopped sculpting because I became discouraged, but it wasn’t until I did it for myself and for happiness that I was able to increase my productivity and creativity.
