You know how I’ve been pretty bad about updating this here blog lately? Yeah. Sorry about that. I have lots of excuses, but the truth is, I hit a bit of a creative wall a week or so ago and needed some time to step back, refocus on what I’ve been doing, and really thinking about how I want to move forward. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about everything, this blog, my passions and everything that goes along with that.
The conclusion I’ve come to is that I love this, this space here, and most of all I love taking pictures of food. There’s few things I love to spend my time on more. I’m know that this is what I want to do for a living. Not immediately, of course, I don’t have the experience, skill level or the technical knowledge yet. I’m not sure what to do to move forward, but I’m working on it. I don’t know if the answer is art school, an apprenticeship, or something else entirely. All I know right now is that I do want to move forward. I have to believe I was given this passion for a reason.
It’s both scary and exciting to finally say it out loud, to tell all of you like this, definitively. I’ve struggled with feeling legitimate, like this photography thing was just a hobby that I’d one day move on from. I haven’t though. It’s this thing that both frustrates me and invigorates me, I figure that’s probably a good place to be. If you have any tips or words of wisdom for me, please leave them in the comments!
I didn’t think all of that was going to come out when I sat down at the keyboard, and I’m so tempted to delete it all, but since it did, I guess it’s time to hit the publish button!
