Photography has been an interest of mine since I was in elementary school and lining up my stuffed animals for a group photo, taken with my mom’s camera.
It wasn’t until college that I really started getting into the technical aspects of it. I paid too much for a digital camera that I still have now, although I use my mom’s DSLR for most photos.
Photography is more frustrating than people think – it can seem easy at first to get good photos – and if you’re observant, and know how to use a camera, it isn’t terribly difficult to get a good photo.
The challenge lies more in getting a photo that is absolutely breathtaking. Which, when you become a photographer, becomes a goal that is constantly hanging over your head. Even if you do happen to get an unforgettable photo, you want to take more.
Photography becomes an obsession, an addiction to creating a lasting story with one image.
Combining photography and fashion, two things I love, for this blog has been a challenge that I love.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want this blog to convey to readers, and it comes down to two simple things: inspiring and helping others.
And with that, here are the photos from one of my recent photo shoots, complete with a t-shirt emblazoned with one of my favorite things, a Polaroid camera.
