In it's own way, this is about learning to feel comfortable in front of other people. We are so used to what we look like, how we move when we see ourselves in the mirror. But as soon as we leave the house, our comfort zone, we act differently, because others are there to see. When I first started taking my film camera with me and using it on adventures with my friends, I remember them being irritated in the beginning. But they soon got used to it, and today I can't even spot a change in their attitude when I point my camera at them. They have learned to be themselves just as I have learned not to be afraid to take a photo. But things are different when someone takes my place in the experience. I'm so used to being behind the camera, or taking my own portraits, that as soon as someone else takes a photo of me, I have a really hard time remembering that person I see in the mirror every morning. I am trying to learn to be that person at all times — in front of the camera, and in front of everyone I meet on a daily basis.
This kind of belongs to this photo:
