How far I've come

Sorry its been a while since I last Blogged. This will be my 2nd for 2019 and it was requested last year I do a post of how far my photography has come. I'm going to warn you that this isn't going to be pretty ..... lol. I look back at my early work and laugh. I'm so grateful to those friends who let me shoot for them.

It took me a long time to try and figure out my photography style. To be honest, its still a work in progress. I knew what I wanted my photos to look like, but my problem was editing, and not knowing my camera didn’t help either.

I started taking lots of photos of Play dates when my eldest was first born with my little point and shoot camera. From there friends asked me to take photos of their family and then maternity and newborn. With my Panasonic lumix and working in Auto mode...yup I die now .... but I thought I knew what I was doing and my photos were awesome! oh and editing.....that just throwing on a filter right! eeeek!

You want to see what I'm talking about.....take a look!

It wasn't until a good friend lent me her DSLR camera that I finally started working in Manual mode and learning. I finally got guilty of holding onto her camera and got my own in 2015 when I had my youngest son. Now I'm my own worse critic, in all honest I think everyone is and even now my photos still need work. Its nice to know we all start somewhere and I can see my growth. Its a learning process, learning from other photographers who are more advanced. I know where I've been and I know where I want to be in 5 yrs time. So here's a few then and now images for you. Also a HUGE thank you to all my friends who stuck with me all these years.
