the skill and art of photography . . .

photography, like so many outlets of artistic expression,
is viewed with a harsher eye by the creator
than by the created.

when I look at a lot of my work
I see its flaws, its cracks, its imperfections.
I opine that the lighting could be better,
the pose should have been just an inch or more the other way,
or the prop idea is all wrong.

I have to remind myself that it is a skill
that continues to develop,
and rarely goes from zero to 60 in a nanosecond,
unless you happen to be a savant,
which I am not.

So while I am struggling with finding that "golden" hour of evening natural light, I am getting closer. I have the concept down, I just have to work on the timing (travel time, placement of props, and getting my models together). Practice, practice, practice. My son keeps reminding me that I'm almost there. I love it when he is the voice of reasoning, especially when I see all the cracks, flaws, and imperfections of my work.


  1. We are our own worst critic!! I think you did great with your models!

  2. Awww! That's so sweet of him!!! And very pretty! We are our own worst critic! Unless we ask for CC from 2peas...JUST KIDDING!!!! We're still our own worse critic. :-) :-) :-)
