Ahhh 2009…the year it all started. It really hasn’t been that long ago, but I did so much that year. In the beginning, photography was a hobby that I totally immersed myself in to keep my mind off of the not so nice things that were happening that year. I scoured the internet, read books, took notes, and practiced every spare minute I had. Photoshop was heavily relied upon to make up for my lack of skills. I probably went through the whole gamut of things “not to do” as a photographer. The heavy vignette, plastic looking skin, selective coloring…yup, I did it all because at that time it was way cool.
I had to dig through my archive to find the best of 2009 and boy, am I glad they were only my friends and family. Everyone loved their photos and I gave them the best I could do at the time. I remember the hours and hours spent editing each photo…makes me exhausted just thinking about it. I’m just REALLY glad that I have improved since then =)
