I titled the post oversized sweater and Leather pants not sure if this is fitting for my Aritizia sweater can still be considered oversized as I placed the sweater over the leather pants in three different ways throughout the whole shoot incase the initially intended oversized look did not turn out very well. At the end, looking through the images, the sweater left out fully wasn’t as bad as I had thought.
“Never ever being satisfied” happens to be the bane of my existence. Yes, I enjoy creating content and putting it out there. But since I happen to be myself’s biggest critic, nothing ever seems to be perfect enough. Looking through and editing pictures since June, I really wasn’t feeling completely satisfied with the images. It seemed I was pinning onto one complaint to the other. The first was my pictures doesn’t look like the blogger aesthetic, well it’s not supposed to look like everyone else because I’m not everyone else moreover, a different photographer took the picture. Next complaint, maybe my poses sucks, It would have being much better if I was standing this other way. Basically, after each shoot I end up beating myself into believing that my images are not quite “there” only to finally accept that the images/styling actually turned out just okay. As I was editing the pictures for this post, I finally began to appreciate the photography and all the work that has gone into them the past few months and I am thankful for what Hector and I have being able to accomplish thus far.
I guess one of the positive benefits of never feeling satisfied is that it pushes you to try and do better, but the lesson here is don’t be too hard on yourself. It’s good for everyone once in a while to take it easy. What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
