It's a new year, a fresh start. I decided to do a project called "Fresh Take" for a submission project to an amazing publication called Local Wolves. I shot in natural, well lit areas with some of my closest friends. As someone who struggles with anxiety and mild depression, I can be the first to tell you that it is not always easy to portray that I am confident in my work as a photographer. I am blessed to have many around me who are supportive and appreciative of my art.
To me, a "fresh take" means starting fresh and looking at something from a different perspective, thinking outside the box, if you will. A new year is something that many take advantage of in many ways: trying a new diet, pursuing different ways to make their life more fulfilled or even trying to improve their health. Personally, for me this new year is something that I want to treat differently than those in the past. The goal for this year is to improve my confidence in my photography and continue to create art that inspires others.
