It was when we went to England to visit London and family in Devon. It was my first time flying overnight on an airplane and it was my first time having a dslr camera – a Canon T2i. I was digging through my back up files on my external drive to find a particular image when I came across these and I was immediately back in London.
Amazing how I could remember so much about that trip but often forget where I just put my cell phone 😉 It is also when I first took a step into street photography (a genre at the time I had no idea of) which has since become something I very much enjoy doing. I guess I am channeling all of those sociology and anthropology classes I took in college through my camera now.
When I looked through the folder of this trip I of course critiqued the heck out of myself; the good, the bad and the oh geeze what was I thinking! Back when I shot only in jpeg’s and in full auto. Hey! We all gotta start somewhere! Most importantly, it shows that my photography skills have grown and evolved. My editing skills definitely have grown but even with that there is still plenty more to learn and explore photography wise.
What do you do or feel when you look back at some of your early photography work?
