This is going to be a brief post, but I just wanted to share a few of my old photos and compare them with my more recent work to show what a difference 5 years of practice can/will make. These old photos were all taken with my Canon Rebel xTi and edited with Picnik (pretty much sold my soul for that premium membership). Looking at them makes me laugh; mostly because of the style back then and the angles I thought were super cool), but it makes me so happy to see how far I have come. I remember being so proud of those images, and now I am proud of my new ones! I hope I continue to learn and improve so that I will always feel that way. Long story short: Don't give up!!!!
