Here's is where I'll babble on about how I haven't picked up my camera in weeks and, of all days, yesterday was the day i did.

I spent the majority of the day laying on the couch, sick, reading beowulf for AP English (shoot me.) and I realized I had promised colleen (the model) that I would have a shoot with her for forever, so i decided to keep my promise and go out with her.

I won't lie, I was doubting myself in thinking that any of these would turn out because i've been looking through a lot of really amazing work recently and researching colleges and wondering if I'm even good enough to pursue photography as a career. But as I started shooting and enjoying myself and coming back and looking through the shots, I realized that in photography, and many many other aspects of my life I need to stop doubting myself, and have a little more confidence. It's something I have started to realize is a bigger personal issue than I ever thought, and throughout this next (school) year, I hope that I can improve on that.

Meanwhile, I may start a new project to make sure I continue to pick up my camera and continue to do what makes me very truly happy. :)
