Blogging from bed needs to be done sometimes…

Roughly two years ago I started blogging and so much has happened in that time. It’s been a real period of growth where I’ve faced (and blogged about) certain issues such as confidence. I’ve learned a ton of skills from writing, photography, editing and even how not to look miserable in front of the camera. All in all it’s been a coming of age. I have more confidence in myself and a better idea about who I am as a person. With all these personal changes the stuff I use to blog has stayed pretty much the same.

Very recently it felt like I had turned a corner with street style photography. This time last year I was mostly posting lifeless looking pictures that did nothing to reflect my personality. This was really frustrating because good imagery is what I’ve been striving for from the beginning and boy it hasn’t been easy. Part of the issue was my confidence in front of the camera which I spoke about in this recent blog post. With practice I’m learning how to look more relaxed and carefree in images without resorting to a big cheesy grin. Beyond that I’m learning through trial and error how to keep things cohesive plus things to look for when location scouting and the best types of natural lighting. View Post

I received so much positive feedback from my recent post on confidence, how blogging is shaping me as a person. The inspiration to write that post suddenly came to me and I quickly wrote down everything I was feeling at that moment. In this sometimes materialistic world it’s nice to throw a bit of heartfelt realness amongst the perfectly staged ‘real lives’ we often put out. Thank you to everyone who took the time to leave a comment, it warms my heart : )
Today I thought it would be fun to share some things I have learned along the way so far. View Post
