Yesterday I had a chance to meet with my photography instructor and get more individualized help with my camera.
It was a real game changer. Now, I feel pretty confident using my camera. I can go out and about and snap photos, and get some overall descent pics. It feels like the worst part is over. Breaking through my comfort zone was a hard thing to do.
For about three months I had to consistently fight these uncomfortable urges to quit. I never felt like going to my class, and I always hesitated before grabbing my camera for practice. I didn’t practice nearly enough because it was so uncomfortable.
But I pushed through it and eventually working on my photography skills became comfortable for me. It’s still hard, but I feel way more competent in the area.
I feel much more excited about practicing. I hope this will lead to more consistent practice!
