Beautiful wedding photography for Lovers

True sense of Self

Category: Personal

Everyone has a role in life and the role of a photographer is usually behind the camera to capture others. It is a nice place to be behind that camera. No worries about a bad hair day, what to wear (this is off course not true) or how to look into that camera. But i find that being behind the camera can be as intimidating a in front of it. To meet the expectations of the client can cause a lot of stress honestly. Because whatever happens failure is not an option. 

So how to prevent failure from happening? For starters work with proper gear. That resolves about half of all problems. Then come prepared. So have a back up camera, format all the memory disks in the camera, have your battery fully charged and back ups available. It sounds very straight forward and to be honest it is.

But where was I? Ah yes I remember. As a photographer you are never in sight of a camera lens. So you can image that being in front of the camera myself this one time I felt a little uneasy. With the self timer I wanted to capture with this picture who I really am. A woman obviously, a wive (if you look closely you will see a ring), a sister, a friend, a project manager, a photographer, a writer. But off course these are all labels that I can tag on myself.

That is not who I really am. No my true sense of self is simple. I am a soul, a source of light.

Well hope you can see it.

Very good article. I've found your blog via Google and I'm really happy  about the information you provide in your articles. Btw your sites layout is really messed up on the Chrome browser. Would be really great if you could fix that. Anyhow keep up the great work!
