What is photo regret? For me it is having the opportunity to capture images that will tell a wonderful story and not taking the chance. It is the sadness of knowing the story is an amazing one but either choose not to go or not to use my camera more while in the mist of something magical.
I have been photographing in someway shape or form for over half of my adult life. I have carried my camera by side for years but I have also gone YEARS without ever picking up and holding the love of my life, much less using her as much as I could have been.
I was afraid to take photos of the crowds, I was afraid someone would think I was crazy. "Hey who is that lady taking all those photos"..... ya know.
As I sit here on a Monday - the Monday after OKC PRIDE - I think about all the images that I could have, should have and dammit was afraid to take, I vow to myself to not ever let that happen again.
I was brave enough to capture a few images from this years event - photo regret.... how much more fabulous images could I have captured?
