Community Photo Day at Sub Rosa

What’s the word for it when you are excited, but terrified, so you put it off until it’s too late? Anyway, I’m not going to do that. I am excited! I miss shooting pin-up more then I realized until I started talking about doing it again and pulling out my lights and gear. But I’m also a bit terrified! What if no one liiiiikes me?
