I read an article when I first started my hand at photography that caught my insecurity just where it hurt. I had just purchased a web domain and had a friend design my site. I had clients who liked my work and I was enjoying the thrill of doing something new that was fun and important - documenting milestones and relationships in the lives of others.
My oldest son, catching.
When I started my photography journey, I did what a lot of beginners do - photographers or otherwise - I tried to identify myself by comparing my photographer self to others in the business. I think that's fine to do in the beginning as one finds their way but dangerous to continue - one must find their own way and do things the way that works for them...
"Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography."
- George Eastman
