    I have been keeping my photos mostly to myself over the years, sharing them with a few family and friends. But I have been coming out more. I am well aware that my photos are more documentary and not very creative. They have created great memories for me and for a few others – but not much more. Your posting has helped me to realize a change that is occurring in me. I feel a need to make photos that tell a story. I have been working at doing just that, but the process is both difficult and frustratingly slow. Also, it is not enough to simply compose and shoot anymore. I am feeling the urge to process my images so as to emphasize the meaning of the photo. This is why I have purchased an excellent application that is beyond my current skills. I load up an image and just stare at it, not really knowing what to do or how to do it. This is why I am joining Anthony’s photo processing workshop next month.

    I am not afraid of criticism – usually. I have 25 years of computer software design and construction behind me which has helped me develop a really thin skin. I have walked this earth for seventy five years and have dispelled fear in most of the dark corners I have encountered. My name is Light. I am not afraid to travel nor to live in cultures quite different than where I matured in the USA midwest.

    You are correct that I am my worst critic. When I show my best photos to others all I get is platitudes. “Oh how beautiful!” But what I see are the imperfections in the composure, the execution, the print. Meditation does help. I should be overjoyed that there is so much room for my improvement! Actually, I am. Now that I am living alone, I am re-doubling my efforts.

    Thank you for a wonderful and inspiring article.

    Hi Diana your article was very inspiring and uplifting. I have been meaning to haul out the camera again and your words have encouraged me. I intend to print up some of my old photos and have them around me.
    Thanks again,
    Anne Killeen
