Veronica over at Veronicaarmstrong.com is hosting a meme today about looking back at a post or a photo from last year. I decided to do a photo because….well you know why!!
I rarely look back on my photography journey so far. But I have to remind myself that just last year, I was JUST starting to play around with my camera.
I was interested if I took any photos with my Canon this time last year, and I looked through my archives and found this photo:
I think I had JUST gotten my camera about a month before. So this is shot in auto with my Kit lens( the lens that comes with the camera). White Balance is off, the stuff in the background is soo distracting. Pookah is slightly out of focus, I head chopped CDub.
But it’s one of my favorite photos. I printed it out. I was proud of this one. Still am.
And THIS is one I took this week.
The photo was taken in RAW format. In the middle of the day. I still have issues with composition and distraction in the background( that pole anyone?) But it’s better. MUCH better. And I did for myself what my camera did last year since I shot in manual. My settings: ISO 200, F/3.2, SS 1/2500. Taken with my 50mm 1.4 lens.
(yes, the child has on that t shirt again. He loves it. He insists..I’ll be glad when it falls apart…)
I have come a LONG way baby.
I can’t wait to see where I am next year!
