Step 4 of the plan to help my depression and anxiety through photography is taking shots of yourself. It could be of your hand, reflection, etc. No one else, which is the difficult part. We tend to shy away from taking photos of ourselves as we are our worst critics. It’s a habit we must break but that is up to you and time. We must accompany the photos with a essay of sorts explaining our story.
It’s great a way to show who you truly are in the world. We all need that to truly feel alive. It’s time to let go of the negative emotions and move on. Thus I will be doing a series of shots with me as the model in some form. Its a challenge I’m willing to take. Both activities will be tough but I’m so looking forward to the process more than the actual destination.
