I had a pretty good summer. This realization came to me on the last day of my internship at the Austin American-Statesman as a few of the staffers looked at my work from the summer. Throughout the entire internship, I had constantly beat myself up over the quality of my work. I’m by far my own worst critic. I often overlook the good and immediately focus on the flaws. I’m extremely driven to be a better photographer, which can sometimes frustrate me when I don’t make perfect images. I might hit a single, but I’m often swinging for the fences. This summer as a whole was a time of tremendous personal and professional growth for me. I’m grateful for the awesome opportunity to have learned from and worked alongside incredible photojournalists at the Statesman.
