The Pursuit of Pretty Pictures ~ Lesson Uno

(shimelle.com)

Shimelle's first Camera School lesson talked about letting go of photography fear. She addresses many different types of fear - technical fear, creative fear, confidence fear, accuracy fear, in-the-picture fear, and can't-put-your-finger-on-it fear. To this list I would like to add anatidaephobia and chaetophobia. Can you guess what those are?

(anatidaephobia - fear you are being watched by a duck ... see it? bahahahahahaha)
chaetophobia - fear of body hair
In other words, Pierce Brosnan: A Chaetophobiac's Worst Nightmare
Now that sounds like a fantastic TV show. Almost as good as Jersey Shore.

Weren't expecting that, were ya?

Anyhoo, here's a few of my pictures that karate chop my personal photography fears right in the noggin. 

Face punch!

technical fear: landscape shots

creativity fear: interesting angles

confidence fear: taking pictures of ugly things

accuracy fear: auto-focus

in-the-picture fear: yeah ... maybe its cuz the pics I take usually look like I got mauled by a bear.


can't-put-your-finger-on-it fear: not being able to get that perfect shot, no matter how hard you try

All these pictures are straight out of camera (SOOC) except for watermarking, which is another fear of mine. Not editing?!? Pictures of myself especially, cuz sometimes it kinda looks like I have a butt chin a la Mr. Shue of Glee.
Look at that CHIN!
I did it. Now you do it! Face your fear! Face (pun!) punch it in the ... FACE! Woo.

Get clickety wit' it, my peeps.
