catching up



I can't believe how fast this Summer is flying by!! I have been focusing a lot lately on improving my photography knowledge......reading books, looking at websites, etc... There is so much information out there and it can definitely become overwhelming, but I am trying to just enjoy the process of learning and realize that there is not a "destination" I am trying to reach.  I have to remind myself that the part I love is taking pictures.....interacting with people and telling the stories of our lives that often go untold....but learning and pushing myself are part of the process and I need to find comfort in that part of it as well. 
I am having so much fun playing around in Photoshop, using some actions and just seeing what happens......I am trying to just go with the flow and not worry about the "rules" or compare myself to others. Sometimes instead of just appreciating the work of others, I instantly begin to compare myself to them and inevitably end up feeling less than. 
I know I have a lot of work to do in order to get more comfortable with the photos I take, but for the first time in a long time, I am passionate about something and I am having so much fun:)
