A long break and reason why

I seem be saying: it is has been a while a lot. This time, I want to explain a little why this keeps happening. I have this thing were I feel like I am fake and someone is going to find me out. I know it is called imposter syndrome and lots of other people are in the same boat as myself.

It has hit hard as I have leaned into my photography. I found myself in many Facebook groups on photography and editing, as people were posting their photos, the little voice inside my head kept telling me you are not this good. You must quit because you will never be this good or have the skills they have. And I listen to that voice for a long time and let it rule how I felt about myself.

One day it hit me. It doesn’t matter what my little voice says, I have spent two years growing in my skill set and learning more about what it takes to get a good shot. Also lots and lots of practice. Recently, we went on a little trip back to a place in the middle of the Ouachita Forest and we spent a couple of hours there. In that couple of hours, I took a lot of pictures and will only use about 20 of them. This is to say, when you think you got the shot, take a few more.

Something else I have been working on is taking pictures of people. This has never been my strong suit but it is something I would like to learn. I am sure Glitter is tired of my asking her to let me take some more pictures of her.

All this is to say, I am back. I am not saying for sure how much I will be posting. However, I have missed you all and can’t wait to get back on the “horse” and start blogging again.
