My motto has always been "Don't be average at the things you love to do, be exceptional." Even as a little girl I would dribble the soccer ball around the house for HOURS so when Saturday's game came I would be that much better than the week before. Yes, I may get a little OCD when it comes to new hobbies, but I have always been like this. I am learning to embrace it.
I have been chatting with some of my "exceptional" photography friends and have come to the conclusion I need to say BYE BYE to Mr. Flash and Hello Mr. Manual setting. This is going to be hard for me because 1) I always use the flash..even if its not really needed. 2) I prefer the settings that do all the work for me.
I am no where near being exceptional...so in the meantime I will be the obnoxious girl who is taking millions of pictures of the same thing until the aperture and shutter speed are juuuuust right ; )
