My last post was a bit long. Apologies! I recently read a post on balancing writing with photography, when writing a blog post and I definitely focus more on photography whenever I can; but sometimes as you can probably tell with these photos, I can’t.
Generally I’ll try to read the atmosphere. This time round, everyone was tired and hungry and I didn’t want to get in the way with my phone. After all not everyone appreciates photos, especially hangry people. If I’m being totally honest though
I would have to say more often than not the biggest obstacle to getting good photos is me. My friends are all very supportive, if I wanted to get some nice shots of our food they wouldn’t complain
there might be a bit of banter here and there but I hate being an inconvenience. I absolutely despise it. Okay, I have no problem being late to events but I would rather stay quiet than voice my opinions, especially if its different, out loud to a group. As a result I always go with the majority consensus and it takes great courage for me to voice my own opinions out loud.
I also hate standing out. Granted I require attention sometimes … okay a lot of the time but I hate having too much attention on me. I hate receiving awards and when we do games like Trivia or Bingo, even if I’ve won I won’t say it out loud, because I don’t want the whole room staring at me. Is this weird? It probably is.
I feel like now is where I post solutions I’ve found to help you guys, if you’re experiencing the same thing but I honestly don’t know how to overcome this problem. I think when you’re around friends and you’re in a comfortable environment its a lot easier but even then sometimes I will keep things to myself because I don’t want to say the wrong thing. Anyhow let me know if you have any tips.
