Everybody has their thing. Something they're good at. Something that makes them feel valuable. Until this year, I had never found my thing. I'm bad at sports. Too stage fright to do performing arts. Not artistic enough to do 2d or 3d art. Okay at school. Okay at a lot of other things. But there has never been something I've been good at. 

But this year I truly fell in love with photography. I mean, I loved photography before, but now it's something different. This year I realized the true meaning of photography, it's not to just snap everything in sight, it requires thought and sometimes taking 10 good pictures is a lot more rewarding than 200 okay ones. I realized that it's quality over quantity. And shooting film made me love photography even more, when you actually have to think about it because you only have 24 or 36 shots and you can't see them right away, it really does bring the creativity back into photography.

yeah, photography is definitely my thing.

That's what I love about photography:) Its just a "go out there and get it done" thing, like sports, but it takes time and patience to get the perfect shot. And you also have to deal with lighting and issues like that too!

And I am the same exact way with that, I am not "great" at really anything, I don't have a voice powerful enough to have a solo, so I'm just in the JV choir. I'm not quite fast enough to make Varsity track. But I've learned that even if your not the best at something, just doing it in the first place is amazing.
