Photographer Thea Coughlin, whose transformational online photography class I've been taking over at Squam this month, recently asked us to reflect on our feelings about being both behind and in front of the camera.
Gulp. Sharing all this with you, dear readers, feels pretty brave. But in hope that it will resonate with at least some of you, here's what I wrote:
1. Are you more a witness or a creator photographer? How does that feel to you?
2. Is there something or someone you would like to photograph more?
3. How do you feel about being photographed?
4. Do you have any personal blocks that you can release that would enable you to be the photographer you wish to be?
