Shutter Release

About a week ago, I was thinking about giving up my photography "business." Just the mere thought of taking pictures, editing them, and turning them around to the customer on a given time line was enough to make me cringe. ...I know, that's awful... right? Now, I don't know if the stress of the business is really starting to get to me, or if it's just the "depression" talking... because to be honest, I haven't had much motivation to do anything productive lately in my free time.

But, alas, I had an outstanding appointment set up with a friend of mine to do pictures of her family last night, so I sucked up my lack of motivation and headed out the door with my camera... and something happened when I brought the camera to my eye. I felt something inside me come back to life (as cheesy as it sounds) and with each release of the shutter, I was feeling some of the emotional walls crumbling away. It became therapeutic... and our one-hour session turned into two hours before I even realized it. I think I might stick with the photography for a while, after all. I'm feeling the need to have a mini-photosafari... just head out one day on my own with nothing but my camera and see what magic I can capture.
