Om perfeksjonisme og det å være god nok
I'm a perfectionist. Like really bad. I set these impossible standards for my self and sometimes they hold me back from trying something new because I know I probably won't be good at it (Duh, who here is good at everything new they try, I'd like to see their hands in the air please). On my big Californian adventure I've spent a lot of time reading about the technical skills for taking great pictures because I really want to get better at it. But it's a real challenge for me balancing the wish to better myself with the need for perfection. Up until now most of my pictures have been taken on my iPhone which has felt safe and comfortable. Now I'm running around snapping pictures while trying to remember if I should set the aperture up or down. Safe to say not all my vacation pictures turned out just the way I had hoped. But I'm trying to remind myself that it's all part of the process and that I'm learning more than I would have if I'd stuck with the camera on my phone. Kind of a perfect imperfection. And if you are ready for my first stumbling steps with a camera, I'll be glad to share some of my pictures with you.
