I have been thinking a lot about my photography journey lately. Trying to figure out when the obsession - or should I say passion - started. When that desire to learn and explore began. I can trace it back to January 9th, 2011. To this picture:
I am thankful for this picture - because as soon as I hit the shutter - I felt "it". That feeling of capturing exactly what I was seeing, capturing the day, the moment. I realized the importance of light, colors, what a difference a second made. This was an accident - I couldn't have painted it any clearer if it was intentional. When I saw it on my computer - at that instance I knew that I wanted to learn how to capture more moments - deliberately. So I dove head first into my passion. Though there is a lot technically wrong with this picture - it will always remain one of my favorites, and I wouldn't change a thing about it. This marked my first step in my journey.
