Second spring

I've been so awkward with photos lately. I'm still adjusting to the new camera, and it's taking some getting used to. I've been writing this blog for almost three years now, and after a point, I've developed a kind of friendship with my cameras — to the point of writing odes to them when they die. And if you do any photography, you almost have to develop a relationship with your equipment when you're relying on their settings, doing a little song-and-dance of knowing where to stand, what height works best, all of that. So right now all of my photos feel somewhat experimental, if that makes sense. I'm still learning! I've been in a critical funk lately, and I think grad school has done that to me a bit, where it's difficult to get out of an analytical mode and feel sure of the work you do. This creeps into some of my hobbies too. I'm working on a "Mad Men" spec script for my screenwriting class and I hate every line I come up with for Pete Campbell. 

Anyways, about the photos. It hasn't quite become autumn here yet, and I am eagerly anticipating when the leaves turn into vibrant reds, yellows and oranges. It's part of the reason I decided to spring for a new camera this semester — I didn't want to miss north Georgia's foliage, especially since this will probably be my last autumn in the South for a while. In the meantime, I've started wearing more browns and reds,  just waiting for the season to change, too.

    I think the photos look great!

  2. I think the photos are turning out quite well! The lighting is lovely. I get how hard it is to learn about a new camera though, so hats off to putting in the effort. xx

  3. LOVE your cardigan! Shiny = glam!



I'd love to hear your thoughts!
