I'm back. Sort of. Almost two years ago I quit my photography business. I haven't stopped shooting all together but I definitely don't pick up my camera as much as I used to.
That all changed today.
Today I started. I started with fear. I've never done a self-portrait before. Now, let's be honest here, I've done a "selfie" or two (or more...) with my phone but that's just not the same as getting in front of my Nikon. Alone. So weird. Yet fun and challenging at the same time.
I want to get back to why I started shooting to begin with. Which was to be creative, to take beautiful, meaningful images, to push myself, to do more...
"Start now. Start where you are. Start with fear. Start with pain. Start with doubt. Start with hands shaking. Start with voice trembling... but start. Start and don't stop. Start where you are, with what you have. Just... start."
