my thoughts on anything - photogrpahy or not
It's been nearly two months since my last update - and let me tell you, a lot has changed for me within two months. This refers to my skills within the scope of photography and editing, as well as my life in general. My life has completely changed and is in high gear - college has commenced online. As much as I love staying on the computer, this is awful. The workload and the amount of time I spend studying is so absurdly long that I honestly just lose track of the days. I didn't really have a plan per se, so I ended up just stuck in a cycle of studies and gaming - pretty boring stuff. I wanted to break that cycle, and picked up the camera again this weekend.
So, I planned to go to Burnside Farms, a farm where they have really pretty flowers to take pictures with. Their specialty is the sunflowers, which would've come out fantastic! However, read what I wrote again. Read they keyword, planned. Yes, that is right. We did not end up going to Burnside.

On and off, for at least two years, I've been behind the camera and snapping pictures here and there. It's always at a friends party, on a family trip, or even for an Instagram post. I've had a while behind the camera, but maybe it's time to get serious? I mean sure, I shoot with a DSLR, but that just doesn't automatically make my pictures good or my skill professional. I shoot automatic, I don't edit in Lightroom, and I don't even touch up pictures. How can I call myself a photographer? I blindly shoot things that look "cool" without any artistic concept in mind. I feel like photography is an art, and I need to treat it so. All of these thoughts collided together and converged together in July 2020. I knew I needed to get serious if I was ever going to improve. So, I got to work.
