A REAL story behind blogging...
Chronicling my personal style is difficult at times.
I have recently made a commitment to engage in more social media so I can grow my blog readership.
My small circle, (in real life), tells me I have talent.
I want to showcase these abilities and I’m tired of being afraid of doing so.
I am cognizant of the fact that I must update my content regularly.
That means taking pictures more often.
Which entails finding places that are somewhat secluded, but also out in the open enough to get a good shot.
[ I can’t tell you how many times I’ve taken photos and people have stopped me and asked me what I am doing…or…slowed down to take a peek at what I was doing out of curiosity.]
Since I self-photograph, I don’t get it right all the time.
I.E. Trial & Error.
I get my camera, set it up on my tripod, adjust the settings, press the shutter button, pose, only to check my shots and they come out like this….
It seems that the pictures with the most potential are the ones that come out too blurry or too dark. …The ones that I also cannot selvage with editing.
This day was one of these days where my initial location didn’t work for me.
I felt like giving up.
But I packed up my equipment, relocated and found this.
Even then some of my pics didn’t turn out as planned, but I got some good shots as well.
Then all of a sudden it was all worth it.
Blogging isn’t easy.
It’s a lot of work.
But it’s something I enjoy so even through frustration, I continue to work to produce content I can be proud of.
