As I've said many times, the path to competency, and artistry, is not a straight line. I zig and zag, languish for a while in self-doubt and then try something new or practice something old. I am so grateful for the teachers, mentors, friends and professionals who have helped me these past years. I will really miss the access to the great resources at Madison College - people and equipment both. One resource has been The Rock Agency that has been generous in offering talent for test shoots. I've had a devil of a time learning how to balance background light and flash. With the help of my dear husband and this beautiful and talented model, we came up with a good start last night. I attended a presentation by a wonderful photographer, Sally Mann, last year. Even she expressed some self-doubt. I asked her how she overcomes that and she responded with a quote -
"If Inspiration comes looking for me, She'll find me working".
