I am always scared to begin

It’s always the same kind of nervousness. To start with a photograph I’ve taken and am happy with and then alter it, amend it, deface it; it feels wrong.
I’m scared to mess it up.
I’m scared that it won’t be as I intend it to be.
But at this stage I don’t know what my intentions are. I cannot plan it out. I just have to be myself about it and take each piece as it comes. I have to remind myself that this is not about what’s right and what’s wrong. It’s about how I feel at a particular moment.
I have to trust in my judgement at that moment and build it into a series or moments.
I have to have faith in my Self.
