I wanted to see how I’ve changed as a photographer so I went to my first ten photos uploaded to flickr. The two biggest changes are that I am now really into portrait photography (although mostly natural portraits) and not quite as much into photoshop. My first two pages are mostly photoshop-manipulated photos. The next ten or so pages are photos documenting my life. I got to do some exciting stuff like going to NYC for the second time (but with a lot more time to look around) and also was busy documenting my life as a college student. I’m still into documenting my life and activities I participate in, but I’ve become more sophisticated in my techniques. I now know about shutter speed, aperture, and ISO and I strive to use them to get the best photos I can. I came to appreciate light and how it can work for and against the composition. I also learned when to use flash and when it’s useless. Before I thought no one would want to see an unaltered photo, hence the focus on the photoshopped photos. Then I looked through photography books and learned about street photography and documentary photography. I’ve grown quite a bit from the old days and here’s the proof.
