Right before having Frederick, Josh and I asked his brother, a professional photographer, what type of camera we, complete novices to photography, should buy. He suggested a Nikon D3100. That was 3 years ago and I have yet to figure out the nuances and tricks to using our most basic camera. I’m in the process of saving for a new lens. I’m hoping I’ll have figured a few things out before I’m able to purchase it. My friend, Melody, inspired me with her 10 on 10 project in 2015. I thought I’d take a HUGE risk and try my hand at photography using this project for accountability to keep practicing. On the 10th of every month, I’ll post 10 photos. Hopefully, by the end of the year there will be some progress and I’ll have learned a new skill. Doing this and knowing the photos aren’t all amazing makes me feel super vulnerable. That being said, here are my first 10 on 10. I tried to photograph the last 24 hours of my sister’s visit before returning to the UK.
