A few days ago I brought my camera to school, and took photos of my friends during art class. During the shoot, I noticed that I was thinking a lot more creatively about composition, and how to make the photo look appealing and flattering. As I took the photos I kept in mind the fact that I would be able to edit them in Lightroom afterwards, and thought about how I wanted the end result to look. Photography is such a fun way to connect with people, and I really had a good time taking funny and silly pictures while at the same time being serious. Recently I have really been enjoying taking portrait photography for exactly this reason. A couple days ago I decided to create an Instagram account to connect with other photographers and get more inspiration. This is another way in which I am hoping to promote myself as a photographer and grow my image.
