2010 was a year full of photography for me
I took classes, started to understand the settings on my camera. I progressed from shooting everything in program to discovering manual, and loving it.
I took some pictures I am very proud of, that seem to capture the very soul of that which my lens was pointed towards.
I discovered photoshop, but still strove to take the best SOOC pictures possible.
I despaired of ever being worthy of being called a photographer. I acknowledged that I don’t have the eye for composition the way some people do.
and then I decided I love it and it makes me happy so I don’t care if I am the best out there, my pictures make me smile and people I love, love them, so I will keep taking pictures.
and I will work to improve, although I think I am done with classes… time to just go out and shoot.
Goals for 2011: Take more (posed) pictures of people. Meaning I need to find more people that want their pictures taken. I especially would love to do some larger groups and babies/little kids. so… if anyone in the Wichita area wants to be my guinea pigs as I work to improve my people skills, just let me know :)
Goal #2: experiment some more in photoshop, and learn things like what exactly masks are. I keep doing the same things and I think I could improve. also need to calibrate my monitor somehow so I get better colors.
It is going to be an exciting year~
Part of You Capture!
