There is no doubt that every one of us battle with insecurities every once in a while, maybe some more than others, but for all there is one truth, we have to make an effort to overcome them. I have one insecurity
of course I have more but that is besides the point 😉, walking around with a camera taking photos, yeap, I’m still trying to overcome that “little” insecurity of mine went through these feeling while taking the photos below, oh my!. Granted, the feeling goes away but it really takes a few shots until I am completely relaxed. I tend to become SO self aware of what people are thinking, well, at least what I “think” people are thinking. I know, I know, most people probably don’t even care for what I’m doing, but still, being so self aware is sometimes a little paralyzing.
Sometimes I probably do look a little dorky carrying my camera to almost everywhere I go, and I do probably look a little awkward while taking a photo, adopting certain positions while trying to get “the” shot, squatting, kneeling, stretching and all this, sometimes for a somewhat prolonged period of time mind you.. lol But I realize that I have to get over being so self conscious and instead replace my worries about what other people think about me or what I’m doing with the preoccupation over my own goals in the area of photography and what progress I want to be able to attain. So, enough of me
and maybe still some of us being so self aware and more of me getting out there and being free to photograph the world, people, family and friends without reservations and remembering too, that these can and will be images that can bring us and others, happy memories in the future 🙂
