The other day Pat was going through our blog and fixing old links and broken images that were posted back in 2010. He was also reading my old blog posts I wrote and it was highly embarrassing! Even though I wanted to hide my head under a pillow while he was reading, we both said, “Wow have we evolved since then”. I wrote about learning photography, mistakes we made and even how nervous and excited we were about our new photography endeavor.
I look back to over 4 years ago and remember cramming as much photography information into my head as I could. I lived and breathed for learning how to use my camera. I remember back even farther when I picked up Pat’s camera for the first time and didn’t even know how to take a photo in automatic mode or how to focus an image. He told me about shutter speed, ISO and aperture and I blunted told him I’d never understand it and put the camera back in its case. Admittedly, it took a long time for it all to click with me. That didn’t stop me though, I was determined.
A lot can change in 4 years…a lot can stay the same as well. I still get nervous before every wedding. I still want to always get better in my photography. And the passion for the art has never gone away. While looking back on photos taken in 2010, I thought of I could improve upon and what I would do differently. At the same time, it was nice to see that a little bit of determination and a lot of practice can take you a long way. Our photography has evolved so much as well as our business. It makes me excited to see where we are in another 4 years.
