I've learned so many things from this business. One of the the things I've learned is how hard I am on myself. I really enjoy shooting crew. There is just something about it that I can't put my finger on - but I get excited when it's on the days' docket. On this particular day though I was emotionally down. Not a particular reason just something that comes now and then. You get used to it and work through it. I remember leaving the docks that afternoon feeling like I didn't do as good a job as I could have. A few days later as I'm editing photos from this shoot I realize that all is good. I'm proud of how I shoot and what I shoot. I like that I'm hard on myself. It's not about striving for absolute excellence ~ is there even such a thing?~ rather I will always strive for the best that I can do. At the end of the day I will stand behind my work with pride and continue that drive to improve.
