I probably wouldn't have posted these if my friends weren't pushing me to do it. I am very disappointed with these photos and I did not want to post them at all. I was challenging myself and these were the results. I've had my camera for quite some time now and mostly, I just haven't had very many chances to use it and get to know how it works. My biggest inspiration is @brandonwoelfel and his beautiful work and I wanted to somewhat create a look that resembled his because I am so in love with it. This was my first attempt at something that doesn't really compare at all but something I can tolerate to look at. Thank you to Maryann for being so up for modeling for me to test out my camera, she's always messaging me with so many questions and ideas about what to do next and I'm so excited and it warms my heart that she let's me because I know she can't stand having her picture taken. I've taken over a thousand pictures so far but even though editing and the laptop I've been using hasn't made it easy for me, I still try not to criticize myself too harshly. I understand that with practice and experience, I can create some really beautiful images someday. So here's a handful I don't mind showing to the world.
