Ever since I started photography again there has always been this strange feeling of pressure. I would see a great shot and then worry about my ability to capture it well. On many, many occasions I have made mistakes, some pretty basic, and missed great shots or, at least, not grabbed them as well as I could have. This is probably more due to my “learn on the hoof” approach than anything else. I’m sure some real learning would pay dividends.
Maybe I need to do more basic learning because as of today, thanks to my lovely wife, I now how some more serious gear to play with. The number of excuses for messing it up have now reduced quite a bit.
Then again, even if I do get nowhere with it, I’ll still get people saying “look at the size of that”…
