1/24 - The Golden Touch
"She realized too late that it was something that could not be reversed."
So I decided to start a new project - a modified Project 365 (dubbed Project 24) - because the first half of this year has been very unmotivated, emotionally draining and frustrating. I have let my inner critic get to me and avoided creating and felt miserable because of it. Hopefully this will push me out of my comfort zone again andMy goal is 24 photoshoots/images by the end of the year.

This first image was a struggle. After dragging my feet for a while, I decided to use my free time on July 4th to shoot something - anything. I had some props prepared for a Midas touch inspired shoot and ran with it. It took most of the day shooting images I hated, makeup or costuming that didn't work and nearly wanting to give up. But I stuck with it and I ended up with something. That was my goal. To break my rut of being stuck in my head worrying about failure and just shoot and edit something. And this is the result. I already plan to revisit this idea or at least the original image I had in mind, but for now, it felt really good to be shooting again.
