4 tips for photography beginners.

I don’t confess to being an expert when it comes to photography, but I’m not quite a beginner. I would call myself an enthusiastic amateur. In this post, I’m going to share 4 things that I wish I knew before I started photography.

Staying motivated with your Photography.

I’ll be honest that I have been struggling with motivation to take pictures or create vlogs lately. I am not sure if its the early morning sunrises or late sunsets, but I have just not been feeling it lately. So I thought I would write about my process in getting back into shooting.
