Beating Myself Up
I know I shouldn't do this to myself. As a photographer and an artist, I try to grow and become better every time I pick up the camera. The mistakes that I made that day would not be made today. I've gotten a little better, and a little more confident in my abilities, and my understanding of the equipment. I wish I could go back in time and do that wedding again.
After I've had a day or so to think about it, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was when I was beating myself up. Some of the shots (despite the technical mistakes) came out pretty good. When you take pictures of two people in love, it's hard to mess it up completely.
It has been said that 'We are our own worst critic'. Very true. Each day is a learning process, and healing. Ouch... I'm still sore.
