My journey through photography

Hello there! My name is Lianet and this is my very first blog! Yay!

So let me tell you a little bit about myself. When I was in college i took a photography class, even though my major was nursing. I have always been very artistically inclined, to the point i always thought i was going to be a fashion designer (whatever happened to that ha!). So then I graduated and I came out into this big ol’ world and I was kind of forced to put creativity away for a while. Even though I do love what I do and nursing is a pretty big part of my life, I always felt like I was missing something.
I have always liked taking risks in life and I’m not easily stopped by other’s opinions or my own fear of failure, but for whatever reason adulthood paralyzed me, and I found myself working and sleeping and doing it all over again. My husband, who has been a very important key on this journey, is my greatest motivation. He told me: “you need a hobby, go out there and find something for yourself to do other than work, this is how you become depressed and before you know it you hate your life”. So I listened, even though he likes to point out the fact that I never listen to him lol.
Two weeks later I went out and bought my first DSLR, a Canon 70D. I chose this camera because I already own another Canon and loved working with it. That was the camera I used during my photography class, it is a film camera though. Not very practical when you’re planning on taking hundreds of photos haha.

Another week later I was organizing “photo shoots” with my closest friends. Here’s a photo from the first one I ever did. I felt like I was starting from zero, my hands were clumsy and had totally forgotten what all the settings were for. I did not let this discourage me, I knew I had a lot to learn and needed lots of practice, so that’s what I have been doing since.

I want to invite you to follow me through this journey of mine, and I hope that by doing so I help motivate other people to live a creative life whatever that may mean for each and everyone one of you.  I will be posting frequently and will be talking about a variety of topics, because lord knows I like to write and go on and on about stuff.
