I need to break up my Disney posts otherwise I'll end up a full time Disney blogger and really behind on current posts. I've had a lot of thoughts regarding photography swirling around my brain and figured I would share. I always like reading where others feel they stand with their photography.
Not too long ago, I finally felt that I had reached a point where I was more comfortable with imperfect photos. My imperfect photos. The perfectionist in me wasn't completely sold but I was going along with it. When you're writing a blog post, telling a story, does it really matter if the photo is perfect or not? No. As much as I try not to, I still compare myself to others. I think we all do. And actually, I saw others with imperfect photos too. Maybe I became too lazy.
The real game changer for me was signing up for that Instagram account. It wasn't what I expected. That's not to say that I don't enjoy it. I do. It's just not what I expected. Suddenly, having technically perfect photos didn't matter. I feel like there's more of a push for artistic photos, but you need to meet certain technical standards. I actually had a dream where someone left a comment on one of my IG photos saying, "Watch your white balance." I was mortified.
I realize that it's only natural feeling like I've reached a plateau here and there with my photography skills. It happens in other areas of life such as running, or my career. Well, that's kind of at the bottom of the ocean right now, isn't it? But now that I'm no longer working, I've wanted to spend more time focusing on my photography and stepping outside of my box. I tried freelensing for the first time yesterday. Those photos are still on my camera but I promise to share.
Here are some photos from the past month or so. I'll have a Disney dining review post up tomorrow. Thanks for reading my ramblings.
