If I’m being completely honest, I never feel comfortable in front of the camera. I have never really liked being the center of attention or in front of a group of people–and posing with all of that going on is the absolute worse for me. I have a really hard time depicting to people exactly what I want and how I want it when it comes to photography, which in turn stresses me out and makes me feel more awkward. So if I get a few good pictures out of a hundred I’m pretty happy.
But on the other hand, I love being behind the camera and capturing other people and their life. And I especially love shooting landscapes–plus being in Colorado gives me a lot of opportunities for that.
But for now I am trying to get in front of the camera more and be a little bolder (baby steps people). And today I was feeling floral with my kimono on and went out to get some photography practice (or rather getting used to being in front of the camera practice). Here are some of my favorite shots:
