Print: The Wait

"The Wait" is a digital photograph I recently made with my Nikon Df. It's meant to illustrate the anxiousness and vulnerability I feel when dreading upcoming stressful events in my life (like photographing a formal event, or presenting my work at a grad school critique). Though these feelings have largely subsided within the past few months, I can't help but fell intense anxiety when I know I'll have to perform. I often lie awake at night for days, and sometime weeks beforehand, sweating about the possibility of screwing up. Ain't life grand?

I used a 50mm f/1.8 D Nikkor lens. The scene and image framing was arranged by me, the shutter was tripped by Katie. Processed in Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro 2.
