something I like
It’s easy to get trapped in a photography slump during the winter. I use the excuse that it’s too cold outside. Or consecutive days of drear give me sun depravation and before I know it I’ve gone a while without picking up the camera. Or worse, all the photos I’ve taken were out of necessity or guilt. Like, what kind of mother would I be if I didn’t take pictures on Christmas morning?
When I looked back through the photos from December I saw how few I took for myself. How few I really liked. And absolutely none I took just because I wanted to capture something beautiful that day.
So I made a deal with myself to take a step back. To take pictures with my mind and forget about feeling guilty if I don’t take the camera on every expedition. To make sure I take pictures I like.
