Photo Improvement

I started taking photos when I was in middle school so like eight years ago. 8 years + two years of high school dark + a (almost) bachelors degree in photography made me eager to look back and see my improvement

So I opened up my hard drives to find some major cringe-worthy photos, but you have to start somewhere. 

like I said very cringe-worthy photos. No wonder only my mom liked my photography (thanks, mom).

Now to torture myself further, I am going to do some lovely comparisons of my portraits.

On the left, we have my early work, and obviously on the right is some of my recent photographs. I am roughly matching them by pose, they aren't direct matches, but you get the idea.

...wow that amazing color select editing skills 

if you couldn't tell at one point I used picnic to edit my photos

check out that annoying watermark that used to be on every single one of my photos 

Mom and Dad -look art school was a good idea after all, look at all that improvement! 

Also a HUGE shout out to all the people who were willing to model for me back then.
