I am by no means a photographer. I’ve never really had much interest in photography at all over the years…until recently. I think my interest started over the past year with traveling and feeling like I wanted to capture the way I felt seeing all the amazing places we’ve seen. The problem was I knew so little about photography, and while Shane had a really nice camera, I had absolutely no idea how to use it. So I just took iPhone photos and tried to make them the best photos I could. Here are some of my favorite iPhone photos I’ve taken over the past year.
Only about a month ago, I decided I was ready to learn to use Shane’s camera. Indoor pictures are so much tougher to take. They take such a different eye than landscape and outdoor photos. They take a lot more know how, and I needed help. So Shane gave me a crash course on his camera. There’s so much to learn about photography, and while he’s able to take some killer photos, he doesn’t know near all there is to learn about photography. He taught me what he knew, and I decided to just make it my goal to start taking better photos. Here are some of my favorite photos I’ve taken over the past month, since I learned to use the camera.
These were a collaboration effort from both Shane and I, but I love the way they turned out.
I’ve really loved taking pictures lately. Who knew I would love it so much? I know I have a long long way to go, but sometimes its good to take a moment and be proud of your progress. I’ve asked Shane to buy me some photography classes, so I hope to get a bit more experience. (Or any experience at all.) It’s a real goal of mine to become a better photographer!
