I recently took a spin through the SaigeWisdom archives and realized I don't take nearly enough photos anymore. In previous posts I've named Instagram and lack of time as the 'fall guys', but truth be told, it has less to do with the annoying battery life issues of my Pentax K-x and more to do with my self confidence.
Back in the day when it was just my mom and a handful of others reading my blog, I had absolutely no reservations about posting massive quantities of unedited, overexposed, smile-for-the-camera shots of Saige [except she never smiled or looked at the camera for that matter].
Once I learned that a few of my favourite photogs knew I existed and were even known to stop by my blog, insecurity and embarrassment set in. I stopped posting non-iPhone pics and made up a million and one excuses as to why I hadn't shared those photos from Gabriel's nerd party or our 2012 Halloween. Most of my reason involve me having no time as well as no idea how to edit. Sure I've collected countless of e-books on Lightroom and Photoshop, but who has time to learn tips & tricks with a PVR full of shows to watch? Also my camera sucks a$$ - I go through batteries like Lindsay Lohan goes through rehab facilities #seriously [apparently it's a well known K-x problem that I obviously didn't know about in 2010 when I bought the stupid thing].
Anyways, tonight Saige and I went for a little walk and I decided - after reading this pin - to bring along my unloved DSLR. I'm posting these photos unedited otherwise there's a 98% probability that our evening stroll would never had made it on the blog.
Saige learned to climb trees and I learned to let go...
