Sometimes I feel like I wanna give up. I get discouraged and want to quit. I took pictures last night of the kids and there were a bunch that were so good, except for the fact that they were out of focus! I don't know what happened. I tried editing them but I just hate that I have to do that, I want them to be great straight out of the camera. I tried working on my focus this morning before coming to work because I have a photoshoot tonight and I DON'T want those to be blurry too.
Last night was proof too me of why I need to keep practicing and honing my photography skills. I just have the type of personality that wants to be perfect the first time I do something. This probably explains why I am constantly picking up new hobbies and then moving on to something else. I get bummed out when I am not as great as someone who has been doing it for years. If I would just practice, practice, practice I would be able to play the piano, guitar, cello, and violin, I would be a great sewer, cook, photographer. I would weigh 30 lbs less and know how to dance ballet and tap. I am NOT giving up on photography. I still love it tremendously and I know that I can and will get better at it. I just need to keep finding models and practice, practice, practice!
Thank you for reading my motivational speech to myself :-p
