And I Took A Step and Flew: Taking A Big Risk! | Rochester NY Photographer

So many things in my life (good and bad) start with the words:

“So I had an idea. “

I’ve been thinking for SOME TIME about doing a video series.  But it’s scary.  It’s HARD to sit in front of a camera and be authentic.  It’s terrifying to step out behind writing and still photo and be ALIVE.  ::laughing::

I’m working on being ALIVE.  I need to make that a quote.

So.  Here’s to talking about photography and getting your picture taken.

Here’s to being scared and doing it anyway.

So…my inaugural video is about….


Tammy Swales | On Being Scared from Tammy Swales Studio on Vimeo.

::laughing::  I’m so DAMN ORIGINAL.

Watch it.  Tell me what you think.  Remember, I’m scared to have you watch this.  I was scared making it.  I was scared posting it online.

I’m scared now!

So here’s to BIG RISK TAKING!
