Just a small post today. As I’ve been getting more into blogging, I’m also making an effort to be more active on Instagram. My goal is to take about one photo a day, which can be challenging since I have a desk job in a more-or-less standard looking office.
One thing I’m really enjoying right now is how blogging has really brought me back to my photography roots. When I was in high school I was really passionate about photography, especially fashion photography. My best friend and I would get dressed up in our goth-y clothes and take her mom’s point-and-shoot camera out to a field and photograph each other. Eventually I saved up enough at my minimum-wage bookstore job to buy a Cannon Rebel DSLR, which to this day is one of the largest purchases I ever made (it was nearly 1k back then). Honestly, considering we were 16 years old, I don’t think we were half bad photographers. I even considered pursuing a photography major in college and then a career in photography, but eventually went back to my first and truest love, writing. I haven’t taken many photos in the last 8 years, but I am deeply enjoying this new bout of creativity now. There is something so deeply satisfying about taking photos, editing them, and then sharing them with you all on my blog.
