Truly, I am.
Fact: I get totally lost in photographing.
Fact: I feel like jumping up and down when a shot is working out as well as (or better than) I'd hoped.
Fact: Photography consumes me. Yes, I think about other things, too (like my children, of course!). But not a day goes by that I don't also think about photography.
Fact: I like my pictures.
Fact: I am never totally satisfied with where I am - photographically speaking.
It's like a hunger. I always want more. Maybe that would be more like an addiction, I don't know, except without the side effects of course. Then again, maybe there are side effects... Like forgetting to cook supper, for instance!
So when I look at my pictures, I am always thinking about how they could be better, or what I can work on next to improve lighting, composition, or angles. Could I have used a different f-stop? Should I have taken more photos with a different light source? And so on.
I suppose this is what keeps photography from ever boring me. There is always something to learn. And I always feel that I need to get better at it. It is a challenge that I embrace: It keeps me learning, experimenting, and open to new ideas
So... What next? Some more abstract, I think... I'll have to work on that one!
