Taking A Chance

So today is the first day of something new.  I started a YouTube channel and posted my first video.  The day I stop learning is the day I take my last breath.  Over the last week and a half I have learned so much.  Sure I learned to make a video and the in's and out's of YouTube, but the most important takeaway for me was the knowledge I have gained on how I present myself to the world.  I have tried so hard to not be plastic and to represent who I truly am in both my every day life and in my videos.  Staying true to myself has been a battle as you give up little things for big things.  Life is a trade off.  What I don't want to trade away is the core of me!  I hope over time, with more time in-front of the lens, that I will shine through more and more.  Photography is like a mistress for me.  When I do it I feel like I am cheating on the more important parts of my life.  I take great pleasure in being behind the lens.  I love downloading images off of a card and playing with each one until it is as close to what I saw that made me pull that trigger.  So today is the first day of being true to that part of me and sharing it with the world for better or worse.  I hope you enjoy what is to come, I know I will.
