For light I go directly to the Source of light, not to any of the reflections.
Take time out to reflect on yourself. Do you like what you see? If not start trying to see only what you like. Get on with your hobbies, like photography is a great stuff, you improve every shot you make. From my own experiences you will be equipped or be smart enough to see the things around you from many different angles. It really makes the difference as the shortest way to deal a challenge successfully is to approach it from the right angle. Most of the time preconceived notions will spoil your abilities and self confidence.
