photography Thoughts

raw and imperfect

Joshua recently asked me if I would post some of his photos.  I love that he even cares about that and that he asked me.  He really is getting quite good, and I want to encourage him in it as much as possible.  It was one of those weeks, however, that felt like it left little time to have some fun shooting (both for him and myself).

He took this photo of me during our Valentine’s Photo Booth shoot.  I really like his composition, and that’s why I’m posting it.  I don’t like the dark circles under my eyes (it was a not makeup day), or the fact that I didn’t blow dry my hair.  Obviously I had better things to do on this day, and I did not think I would have my photo taken.  However, I post it because it’s raw (I resisted the temptation to edit it) and because I need to let go of my perfectionistic tendencies sometimes (this post awakened that). Sometimes letting go is part of taking a risk, isn’t it?
