Yesterday, also was my Final Portfolio interview with four of my professors. They had a lot of positive feedback, and when they said "Congratulations Ellen" at the end, it felt very good. I worked hard these past two school years. Harder than I ever worked before at school. I never felt smart in school, at times couldn't believe I was a teacher, but I feel like a photographer. What's the difference I wonder.
I really believe it has to do with how our brains work. I spent most of my time at McMaster University completing a Physical Education degree using the left side of my brain, but when I got to use the right side of my brain playing sports, or thinking up creative practical jokes, that's when I was happiest. I couldn't see that then. It's taken a lot of introspection to be able to see it now. I believe that is why photography makes my soul happy.....it completes my right brained body.
