One of the things I've found is that it's nigh on impossible to hide behind a camera. Merely by pointing the instrument in a direction, you become a participant, an actor. You may still be separate from that thing you've focused on, but the act transforms you into something other than a mere spectator.

All this is very intimidating for me, if only because I've spent the majority of my life attempting invisibility. At this point, I could go into the idea of the photograph as a therapeutic tool, but that might just get weird. Suffice to say that being behind the lens makes me feel exposed, and that that feeling makes me feel like I'm too much with the resulting images.
