Over the last year I've been trying to improve on my photography skills, and it's been hard work figuring everything out - manually altering settings that you don't know a whole load about, changing things like aperture and ISO and then the editing as well.. Especially when you've never studied any of this stuff before.
But then I look at a photo like this, that I've taken, and I start to feel like I'm getting somewhere. It's simple and by no means perfect, but I'm starting to see the skills I've been learning in this picture, and it makes me feel a little chuffed with myself. Definitely a great way to start the week.
