As I work towards a stronger understanding of how a camera works, and as I work towards being more comfortable with my pictures as they are, I find myself having these nice quiet moments with just me and my camera. I have to ignore the voice inside that is worried that others may look at me funny while I take twenty shots of a pastry. I have to ignore the sheepishness that stems from feeling like I have no idea what i’m doing. To move past the frustration that if I was better, I could take a better shot in less time.
And just, quietly enjoy taking a picture. Or at least- to try.
