So here I am, a little over a year after my photography journey began. Well, OK, I've taken pictures for most of my life. But, it was last July that I switched out of Auto mode, after I received a zoom lens and speed light from my supportive husband. He knew I had been inspired to begin studying photography and he surprised me with an awesome birthday gift! And so, my journey began in earnest.
I'm thankful for his generous support, as well as that of my family who are my biggest cheerleaders. And, of course, I'm so very grateful for all the wonderful support and feedback from my blogging friends here! You guys inspire me to keep learning, growing and clicking along. Thank you!!!
So, choosing a favorite image from August was tough. I'm so smitten with black and whites these days, and I captured some moments that I adore. But, when I think about clicking it up a notch and pushing myself, this image stands out to me. I was out in the evening with my kids for soccer practice. The light was changing, the scene was busy with people, kids, and mosquitoes! I waited, watched, took a few crappy shots, and then the magic appeared and I seized the moment. I love the way this came together.
