I Know I Should Let Go, But I Can't by saratheresee I Know I Should Let Go, But I Can't by saratheresee
I am currently too tired and lazy to write a blog about this. But let me say that this photo was one of the most frustrating things I've ever edited in my whole life.

I went into this shoot knowing that it was just one big maybe, and while taking the photos, I really did not think that anything was going to come of it. But after all the hard work we put into just taking the photo, I felt a ton of pressure from myself to make sure I do something with this image.

It took me about two days or to even get an idea of how I was going to put this together in the head. It took a lot of trail and error before I got it to look just right. FINALLY I was finished and could move onto coloring. I took a short break to relax my eyes from the computer screen and came back to find that my laptop had gone blue screen and then shut it self off! I was horrified! I cried for at least an hour.

After I was finished feeling sorry for myself and crying over something that was done and that I could not fix, I sat down and tired again. At least this last time I kind of knew what I was doing with the image. Anyway, this isn't exactly how I pictured it in my head, but I'm still extremely happy with this photo and am rather proud of myself, despite anyone liking it or not, I tried my best. Of course I am sitting here picking out everything I did wrong, but I guess that's just life! So, hope you guys like what you see! I'll be posting a before and after on my facebook sometime today.

You did a very beautiful job and thank you for sharing! I appreciate your honest nature and articulation of the process by which this piece of art was produced. If only everyone in this world could understand that eh? Keep up the great work and always be true to yourself, even if it mean you have to sit down and cry to produce beauty. Thank you!
