My big challenge, as a recovering professional, is taking pictures for the joy of it, again. When I was, well, younger, I always ran to develop film after the roll was done. I grew away from that, and for a long time, the 'image making' was too sophisticated to encourage being impetuous. My ultimate self - assignment is to shoot short rolls, in a simple system, and have dry, developed film 12 hours after shooting it.
