This may be a funny question, but I was wondering what other people, like your husbands or families, think of your photography -- whether it's the portrait work or macro stuff or whatever.
Last night I had a funny experience. I was telling DH that on another site I'm on, I got a photo featured in a group, and he asked which photo. So I showed him, and his jaw dropped in disbelief and he said, "They featured THAT?!" Now, granted, it wasn't his greatest moment of tact but he is totally awesome and sweet, it's just that he did NOT "get" anything about that photo. He didn't think it was in any way special. So we got to talking about it a little, and he was saying that some of the stuff I like to shoot, like mossy trees in woods and stuff, really doesn't make sense to him. He goes to those places with me and sees green trees. Big whoop.
I have to confess, it really hurt my feelings at first. I'm such an amateur, I was proud of this photo and that it got a feature like that, and it really deflated me. But I know he loves other things I've taken, so it's just that certain things don't work for him. Do you get comments like that? Just curious. It's not really anything that matters in a sense, but given that photography is a passion for most people here, I was curious if that ever happens to anyone else, and if you get kind of deflated like that -- like someone's stepping on your baby!
