No Apologies

Just about every blog I read does the same thing, they post a photo of a project and apologize about the quality of their photography.  Every time I think, "I didn't really think the photo was that bad".  I've started to wish that people would stop apologizing about the quality of their pictures because I just don't care.  I want to see what they made, they're not a photographer and I understand that, I just want to see the awesome thing they created.  It's really that handful of amazing photographers that make us all wish we were better but we get better by experience.

Despite these thoughts I find I do exactly the same thing.  I have a very simple point and shoot camera and I'm a crummy photographer but hopefully you don't care.  I hope that you can interpret what the picture shows and see past the bad photography.

From here on out you'll get no more apologies out of me and I urge you to do the same.

I agree! I have only done this once (so far, I think I really just started blogging faithfully for a week now lol) because the lights really made my whites look yellow. note to self: no more pictures in my apartment. good luck!

I agree also. My photos are not the best quality. Half my white photos turn our yellow. Oh well as long as the reads get the gist of it ;)

*hugs* Thanks, I needed that. I feel slightly...less than...other bloggers on a variety of fronts, but it's almost silly to say that picture quality is one of them.

Thanks for telling me to suck it up. :)
