This was taken a few years ago using my very first camera: a Canon Powershot sx40 HS. Back then, I knew nothing about manual mode and exposure. I’ve never opened Photoshop at this point. This was definitely shot in auto mode and edited using a built in photo editing app on my laptop. I like looking back at the photos from this camera because it shows how far I’ve come as a photographer. Sometimes it feels like I’m not really making progress, but that’s not true. I’m very glad that I switched majors and learned more about photography, but I still have a lot to learn.
