Aside from Sam's Town, looks like I will be heading to Arkansas in February for some much needed "camera-time!" I cant wait =) I have been saying, for quite some time, that you have to spend some to get some. And guess what? It holds true! I knew that if I didnt invest in a camera soon I would be missing out on lots of opportunities. So I got a new camera and here came the opportunities rather quickly! Worth every penny. I told my Mom earlier today "its amazing what a little bit of confidence can do for a person" (along with forkin' out some money ha), but its true. I have been hesitant to really throw myself out there as far as photography goes. Maybe something to do with the thought of failure or just plain ol' disappointment in myself. Either way I have went for alot more in the past few months with photography than I ever have. Im still scared of course...who isnt? Even the best photographers have fears at some point in time im sure! I made a vow though that I would give this whole blogging thing a shot for three months before taking my next step. So far so good!! Plus I accomplished getting a new camera! Someone repeatedly told me that I needed to start focusing on what I wanted to do with this and take baby steps. The funny thing about that was the fact that anyone who knows me, also knows im extremely impatient. It gets me into messes quite often especially when trying to make something of myself with my photo's. However, after the trillionth time of hearing this I realized that if I ever want to get anywhere thats what its gonna take and with baby steps. Im trying my hardest and along with having more confidence in myself and planning things are going MUCH better! Enjoy & thanks for following! On that note here is the quote for today =)
"Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, becuase then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward wtih life. Remeber that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can paradoxically make yourself a happier and more productive person!"
