Well for me that is to gain the confidence to take photos in circumstances I normally wouldn’t. Taking photos at home or of my children in the park I have no problem with but I often see something I want to photograph but I don’t because I feel embarrassed that people will watch me or I feel intimidated by my environment. When I was younger I wanted to be a photojournalist but fear held me back. This year I am going to try to be bolder and take the photos I see rather than walk away and wonder what they would have been like.
So this weekend I took my car (and my camera) to a scrapyard and despite feeling very intimidated by my surrounds I asked if I could take a few pics and when I got the OK I did just that. I didn’t linger long enough to get exactly the photos I wanted but it’s a start.
