I think I would rather get a root canal than take a picture of myself. For some reason, I don’t mind seeing other people’s pictures they have taken of themselves, especially if they are done in a classy none narcissistic way. I like to see images of other photographers. It helps put a face to the pictures and helps tell their story. For whatever reason, when I think about posting a photo of myself, all I can think about is how much it feels like I am being narcissistic. It’s one of the traits in humans I am not very fond of. But! I am also a big believer in pushing yourself out of your comfort zones to grow and learn. So here I go pushing myself out of my comfort zone to try and tell my story to help people to know and understand who I am, and why I do what I do.
I have always liked to learn. I think it’s essential to improve yourself and work on your craft. So when I go out to feed my horses at night, if I think there might be some good light, I’ll take my camera and practice. I’m far from the 10,000 hours of training. I’ve heard that it takes before, you are considered good at something. But after last night, I’m a couple of hours closer.
