Remember when I said that showing the treasures that I found at Gum’s Mall Antiques & Collectibles would take me at least two more posts? Well…I wasn’t kidding!! (I hope that’s good news?).
Honestly, while I was taking the photos I had the impression that I wasn’t doing a great job with them – maybe because the light was a little bit goofy in some spots of the store. However, I was gladly impressed when I saw them on the computer.
That’s big!! What usually happens in my case it’s exactly the opposite. I take the shot, see it on the little screen, love it, show it to my boyfriend with a lot of pride, build up my excitement, get home, run towards the computer, plug the camera, transfer the photo, open the file… and then disappointment comes. Mehh… It has so much grain, or it’s blurry, or the colors are faded, or it’s overexposed,… you get the idea, right?
I’m a rookie in this wonderful world of photography, so I still make a lot of basic mistakes when I go out and practice. That’s part of the learning process I guess. As Henri Cartier-Bresson said once, ”Your first ten thousand photos are your worst”. That gives me some hope and motivates me to keep practicing. I’m looking forward to seeing my 10,001 shot! 🙂
Oh, before I forget…Do you know why I chose a Pepsi picture to start the post? I worked at the company for a while when I was still living in Spain. And you know what’s funny? Dan was working with Coke at that time… Rivalry at its max!
Have a great weekend!
