    Someone may have asked this, but do you feel like you have found a specific group of people on CM that you connect with on a regular basis. After 3 years (2.5 of which I spent very little time there) I am still struggling to connect. Just curious!

    Wonderful post! I’ve been a long-time admirer of your work. As someone else mentioned, I absolutely LOVE how natural and beautiful your photos are. I can totally relate to this post almost word for word. I have no problem whatsoever shooting in manual mode. My problem tends to be I feel like I actually underexpose more than I’d like. My editing style is still evolving, so I still feel like I haven’t quite figured out what fits ME. I like bright and colorful, soft and hazy with a romantic feel, and even matte looks. I’m all over the place 🙁 I’ve managed to capture some really great images (on purpose too!) but I still need to work on my composition. I need to see more creatively and I know that.

    I recently joined Rock The Shot forum and would love, love, love to take advantage of workshops and mentoring. I really would. Unfortunately, the budget just doesn’t allow for it. I simply can’t afford to drop $165+ dollars on each workshop. Otherwise, I’d drive us into the poor house! 😉 Thank you for being so inspiring.

      I know the feeling. Clickin Moms and their fabulous workshops are going to kill me! I love learning and trying new things, experimenting with new concepts, etc. I found that starting a Pinterest Board dedicated to photographs that I loved/that inspired me really helped me to nail down my style and how I wanted to shoot and process. 🙂 Thank you so much for your kind words! I really appreciate you reading and being part of the journey around here.
