2016-04-19 Let's try this again

This is the beginning of a new daily photo journey.

I have been very "meh" about photography lately. I have felt like I have been doing a lot of things other people wanted, and very little that I have wanted to do. And then the few times I tried to do something that I wanted to do, I somehow made that into something that I wasn't super into by not pushing myself and not getting the most out of the shoot. Let's say I was shooting with a model, I would kind of let them lead and not really direct. So I would put all this time and effort into something and when I was done my reaction would be "eh..." This is no one's fault but my own.

So, how to change this. Well I am going to spend more time and effort on shooting what I want. And more importantly, more time just playing with my cameras. This, a 28th attempt at a daily photo blog, is an attempt to maybe force myself into the playing. Momentum is a big thing with me, I got used to NOT having my camera on me all the time. So, now I am trying to get used to always having it with me, again.

    I've been in a crappy place in my head, and I haven't been shooting. I am trying to catch up on posting and shooting every day. I have been doing a lot processing though. I like that when I am not doing well, I have an excuse to not leave the house!
