I'm guessing nobody even really remembers me on here haha. I haven't been around in a looooong time.
Probably nobody will read this, but I'll write it anyway.
I was really into learning about photography for some time in high school and early college. It was a fun way to express myself and capture moments. I wanted to keep advancing, but hit a roadblock when I realized the limitations of creating art I could be proud of on a point and shoot. Especially when my best friend got a DSLR and her photography jumped ahead in quality and skill... I would look at my photos and unfairly compare what I could do to what she could do. Not only because she had better equipment but just because she was better at taking photos in general. (Ann I know you're probably going to read this so hi yes I'm talking about you you are amazing okay. This isn't meant to be a pity party, just a statement of where my mind was. Also you are better at photography than me, without a doubt.)
So basically I got
really discouraged and didn't see the point in trying anymore. Which is a terrible reason to stop doing anything. I have become quite the pessimist, even surprising myself at how my mindset has changed throughout the years. It was (and is) still fun but it's discouraging to want to do more and not being bale to do it, for whatever reason.
So yes. Maybe you'll see more of me, maybe you won't. I logged in because magic-spelldust
gifted me a premium membership because of the buy one, get one deal and I realized how long it had been since I looked at anything around here. A lot has changed. It feels like almost a different site.
I don't really have anything else to say. I don't know why I'm posting this to begin with.
