We often find ourselves afraid of doing new things. We like to dwell in our comfort zones and hold up to it long. Little did we know that because of such fear and apprehension, we are not doing ourselves a favor. We don't grow and even more we do not experience the exciting things life could possibly give us. We fear we might get hurt in the process, we fear we may not be incapable of doing it and the list goes on.
This holds true for me. For the longest time, I am reserved and close. I tend not to incorporate new things in my life since I do not want to fail and all the more I am afraid. For the longest time I have wanted to try photography. But it seems this was not the one for me. I have my camera and lens ready and browse through tutorials but still I was not able to apply it. All because of that fear. It seems I am not good in taking pictures. My images are dull compared to others. And my crave for photography is shelved out.
Then, an opportunity came. My friends were invited to cosplay at SM. This was the time when the Avengers are shown in cinemas. Then I told myself, why won't I try. Got my camera and my 50mm lens with me without the fear and apprehension and voila, it was one of the best afternoon of my life.
Here are some cosplay shots I took.
I know I still have a long way to go. But at least I am making the step. These was made more fun when you have crazy friends around.
