You Need Only Ask

I've always been the shy type. No, really.

Quit laughing.

I'm s-e-r-i-o-u-s. I just have a big mouth but every time I want to learn more, my mouth shuts up, my cheeks turn red and I sit in my bedroom doing all my own research. I'm not going to ask a question. People might think I'm an idiot and ppphhsss there's no way I'm going to let anyone think that. Besides I don't want you to think I'm prying. It's a huge weakness of mine. I don't want to ask you what camera you're using, I'll just slyly look at your self portrait that you took in the mirror or look at your EXIF data. I absorb information if you speak it to me but feel like I somehow need to pay you to ask for a little help. Why is this? My process of thinking trips me out. Really. If someone came to me asking how I composed a certain shot, what lens I used, what was my thinking process in posing, what books do I recommend or could I help with setting up a shoot I don't feel like I'm being taken advantage of. So why do I feel like I'm taking advantage. Sigh. Another weakness.

So I've decided to strengthen my weakness. Ask more questions. If I don't ask questions I'll never learn. If I don't use my mouth I'll never meet people or be the help to anybody that I know I can be and they can be to me. So I open up my Facebook page and blog for questions. If you have any kind of question related to photography, whether its composition, how to get a great picture of your kid playing, lighting, reflectors etc, please feel free to ask. I'm no expert but I can answer the best I can and if I help at least one person with one small item I will have considered the interaction a success.

So ask away. I look forward to your questions. :)

Happy Wednesday!
