I've always loved photography and even had an SLR before they were digital!! BUT I never learned how to properlly use the camera - I was 'always on the green' (auto). Learning my camera, taking beautifuly composed pictures and editing in photoshop were always on my bucket list of things to do. I was just too busy crossing off other list items that I never dedicated the time to learn these...until my daughter was born.
The birth of my daughter inspired me to finally take the time to focus on developing my photography skills. I have a LONG ways to go to be as good as some of the photographers I admire but its such a fun hobby. I love that it is a constant challenge and I'm always learning new things to try.
Facebook has introduced me to many talented photographers! Crave Photography is probably my favorite photographer to follow - her images are breathtaking and her edits are so beautiful. She captures deep, rich tones in a lot of her work or will go the opposite with an image that is light, creamy, and sun-drenched!! Just beautiful!
