Chilled Monkey Brians

Ohhhh. I feel like I'll never get good at photography. Not even great, never good. I'm so frustrated. There are so many, maybe too many variables. This ones too bright, the colors aren't right, what exposure is that? Ahhh. I know it's just a matter of practice. But gee whiz, I just feel like I'll never get it. So much too learn. And where's the time? 

Today I am shooting engagement pictures. I feel pretty good about this type of situation. The couple is fun and full of energy. Now it all depends on me. I seem to be frazzled and rushed. Worried about what they think of me. Do they think I'm too demanding? Picky? Bossy? I shouldn't let those things affect me, I'm the photographer and I'm in charge. They want me to be in charge. I need to just mellow out and take the lead. Take my time. Actually enjoy what I'm doing, I used to, when did it become a rat race? I am going to have fun today. I am going to enjoy this couple's energy. I am going to capture it. I am going to make beautiful images today.

I totally relate to this. It can be nerve racking when you let it be!

I'm glad we had a class together too. Are you taking the workshop and/or Non-Silver next semester?
