28th May 2017

I started photography almost a year ago and have been trying to learn what I can from Youtube, articles and experience. The more I learn the more I realize just how much work it takes for a beautiful AND high quality photo. It did come as a surprise but it was a humbling realization. I've come to appreciate great photos that are shown online and instead of being discouraged by them they have begun to fuel the fire inside of me. I keep telling my self "I'm getting there.". This is why in last week's post I said I will no longer attempt to "teach" anyone about photography. I'm no where near that point and I doubt I will ever comfortably arrive at that point. At some point I will become "good enough" to teach but for now I'm focusing on improving and moving forward in life. Talent will come.

The first four photos were taken this past February just up the Cedar City Canyon. Most of the snow had melted but some of the roads were still blocked off due to snow. It was fun to get out of town and into Mother Nature. I always enjoy taking a breather from civilization.

This last photo was taken in October of 2016 in St. George Utah. I have no idea who the person is and doubt the person will ever be known but it's still a pretty photo.

21 May 2017

After all this time I'm finally back. I apologize for the amount of time it's taken for me to start putting my pictures up once again.

For starters I need to catch up on any photos that I've taken over this very long Hiatus. So for the next 7 weeks I will be posting a blog each Sunday (fingers crossed) and explaining some of the things that I've learned during this time. Now I should mention while on this note that I will not be teaching any material like I did with the lighting post. I have come to learn that I'm no where near the point that I can even logically consider teaching another person about photography. The point of the blog is mainly to see how I've progressed over time and to share the journey with others.

I hope to eventually get to the point that I can consistently take great quality photos and share said photos with as many people as possible.
