Some thoughts on 2018: Exploring Photography Deeper

I’ve been exploring what I want to focus on this year. I’m strongly drawn, to bettering my skills in photography. Now, my father has always been an avid photographer, so it’s always been part of my awareness. Going further, I fell in love with photography back in elementary school.
