So I’m always nervous to edit photos - worried the photos will be crap. Worried that they will turn out horrible. That I will be embarrassed to share them.
This shoot really challenged me. I was sure I’d need to change my name and run away…but I worked through my anxiety. Tried to be patient and confident…and still cried driving home.
Can I really do this? Am I any good? Am I as bad as I think?
I waited (procrastinated) to edit. I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t face failing and having a pile of bad photos that I would have to send my friend with an apology that I messed everything up.
Friday I tackled my fears. I put my headphones on and dived in and…it wasn’t horrible. It wasn’t fantastic but it was an experience.
Ultimately, I was able to put together a set of photos that I’m proud of. I have so much to learn. So much to improve. But I’m on my way.
I am capable. I am passionate. I have to believe in myself.
You’re only a failure if you stop trying to succeed, right?
