One of the things I really dislike about blogging (especially in the winter) is taking my own pictures.
I think a lot of you know this already, but I don’t have professional help with my photos. It’s always just me, a tripod, and a remote. It can be tough to run back and forth, adjusting both the camera settings and my poses. A lot of the time, I wish someone else would do it for me since it would probably save a ton of time!
The thing is, I don’t know if I’ll ever give up creative control over my pictures. For one thing, it’s pretty convenient. I don’t have to badger anyone to go outside in the cold and take snaps for me, so I can get a photo shoot done whenever I want…or whenever the sun is cooperating.
Plus, I’ve come to love my own photography style. I’m certainly not saying that my skills are the best–they’re definitely not–but I do like my own perspective. I think I’m getting better at telling stories with my pictures, or at least taking them into a little bit of a different world.
