The best/worst part about photography is how quickly I feel like that 17 year old kid that got conned into trying out for a musical and immediately got asked to leave, every time a camera is in my hands. I don't think I'll ever get over how little I felt on that big stage. The half-spoonful of confidence I mustered to put myself out there has never quite been refilled. Maybe this is why most of my friends are musicians. I will always be jealous of that bravado.
I know these are nothing to get excited about, but forcing that 17 year old me to do this is the closest I can get to overcoming it.
