I was really hard on myself regarding photography this week. I have it in my head that I’m supposed to be so good at it, when in reality I might have been good a decade ago, when I was hardcore into photography and doing it every day, but after a long break and coming back to it only as a hobby, I need to cut myself some slack. That’s really hard for me, because I feel like if I’m doing something, I need to do it right, and strive for perfection.
The purpose of this whole weekly photo challenge was to push myself and practice photography with more intention. So basically… I’m doing exactly what I set out to do, but I’m scolding myself for doing it.
Anyway, I was inspired by valentines this week, for obvious reasons. Who can celebrate Valentine’s Day without macro shots of glitter?! I had a lot of fun using my 50mm lens as a reverse mount macro lens.
