“Do not worry. You have always written before and you will write now. All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”
– ‘A Moveable Feast’,
Ernest Hemingway, Paris 1921-26
This sentence hit me hard. I’ve always had pangs of paranoia that I can’t photograph nicely, or that I won’t get a good photo. It is a feeling that I always get before a shoot, but once I get down to it, that paranoia disappears. I need to focus more on the idea than the execution. After all, isn’t that more important?
