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.
