The pressure to create that perfect shot

So, to set the scene. Its Sunday and I’m knackered. I allow myself to sleep in knowing I have time late on in the afternoon to finish any bits off I need to do for my blog and other social channels. I need to also shoot the stuff I tried to yesterday but had to abort half way through after the wind being a world class bitch - thanks storm Callum. The only thing is, I really couldn’t be bothered. I just wasn’t feeling it, I wasn’t feeling the stuff we tried to create today. I had a really really successful content creation weekend last weekend and I was applying pressure on myself for it to be the same this weekend when I should have just enjoyed this weekend for what it was for - a cosy one surrounded by snacks, comfy food and reading a bunch of books.

I couldn’t just let myself be, I started to get a bit restless thinking I didn’t have enough content for Instagram, I should have used this time to film more videos, write more posts - when really I kind didn’t need to. Since when did I let the Internet rule my life? I love what I do as a hobby, I get a buzz out of creating content I really love and being able to share it, but what I do not love is the subconscious guilt I get when I just want a day off.

A new pressure I’ve found myself adding is the quest to get the perfect shot - remember when we could just pose in our garden or do an OOTD mirror shot in our bedrooms and we would be more then happy with that? Now it’s finding the perfect spot, the perfect filter, the perfect setting on the facetune app, the perfect pose, the perfect outfit blah blah blah. I love artfully done beautifully shot pictures, but I kinda also like the "I liked this outfit so I just snapped a quick picture in my bedroom mirror’’ content too, it’s just as good. I’m getting too sucked into the mind set that everything needs to be "perfect’’ so, on my social channels I’m going to start making an effort to share spontaneous content and not focus on that perfect shot - what even is perfect anyway?

  1. Your outfit shoots are always lush. But I get what you mean about putting pressure on yourself for the perfect shot. It can become draining.
