Phone picture, but I love Missouri.

Hi guys! I know I haven’t posted much since I finished my 365 project last month. I’ve been packing and finally made the move to Missouri today. My mom will be helping me move in on Sunday and then I’ll be on my own!
Never say ‘no’ to adventures. Always say ‘yes,’ otherwise you’ll lead a very dull life.

I love your photography! You're my inspiration to start taking photos again! What kind of camera would you recommend for a starter? I know my way around the cannon rebel, but I want to upgrade or should I stick with my rebel?

Thank you! I had a Canon Rebel XSi as well! If you know your way around that, I would suggest becoming familiar with the Manual Mode. Invest in a few good lenses (50mm f/1.4?). After the XSi, I upgraded to the Canon 5D Mark II, which is an amazing camera. If you aren’t up for dropping lots of money for a new camera body, I would simply stick with the Rebel and invest in good lenses (which are also pricey).

365/365 (July 16, 2014)
Well, I finally finished it. A year ago, I began my 365 project. Some days it was hard to find inspiration, but I learned that I could only complete the project if I looked at the beauty in everyday life, rather than forcing it. I learned to tell better stories, and in the end, realized it wasn’t about seeing my work turn into masterpieces, but to capture the love and beauty and wonderful people I have in my life.
Throughout the course of this year, I saw a lot of changes to myself and my life. I was accepted into my dream school, I became an adult, got a tattoo, and came to appreciate the city and state I grew up in. I traveled farther than ever with good friends and grew closer to my little brother than I knew possible. My grandmother was able to see me graduate high school and I was able to smile without braces. I defeated three years of depression, self harm, and disordered eating after completing my last meeting with my wonderful therapist, and am moving on to an amazing college experience.
I am so grateful for the past year because it has shaped me into who I am right now. I hope you have all enjoyed this crazy journey with me. My entire project can be viewed on my #365 tag.
Now, it’s time to move on.
Chilly, standing on a dirt road with the one I love.
