It’s really sad when you take amazing pictures of other people and they take really bad ones of you.
If I feel this way when I’m nowhere near professional, I can only imagine how my really talented photographer friends feel.
Also, note to self: stop getting led into conducting extensive photoshoots just for your friends, it’s really, really exhausting and you hate it. You only like it when it’s a group thing, not when you’re the hired photog, esp. because you aren’t actually being hired/compensated and you are not a professional.
