CHANGES

Hi everyone, 
This is just going to be a very quick update on my blog and what not. 

So, firstly I have been taking some time to really think about where I want to go with this blog and what I want to do with it. So I think I have somewhat come to a conclusion; I will use this website to post large batches of photos from my DSLR which will including a wide variety of shots including fashion, lifestyle, food, nice looking places, people and just cool things in general which fit my current liking. 

Not only that I'm aiming to take some of my shoots to a higher level in an attempt to step foot outside of my comfort zone and really push myself to do well. As a result, this blog will naturally become a lot less personal and it will mainly be a place for me to gather inspiration and determine where I want to go in the future and where I wish to go from here. It will most probably be a place for me to really reflect and slowly develop my personal style. You may already have noticed that I have removed all of my captions in my past blog posts. This choice was largely because I really want my blog to be the focus of my photography and while I have only just started, and let's face it, I'm really not very good, I really do wish that in the future, it will be my pictures which will attract and form the foundation of my audience. 

Having said that, I think it's still very important that I keep a little "me time" on this blog and so once in a while, I will post these occasional heart-to-heart text posts to keep you all updated. I think that a fine balance between my professional focus and my light heart banter is the key and that's what I intend to do. I'm super keen on where this will take me, so make sure to follow me on my Instagram to see all the things I get up to here and there. 

And to update you all on my life right now; everything feels to be spiraling out of control, especially all the work I've been getting from school! I have also been working hard on some still like sketches that my art teacher has been constantly been pestering me to enter in some sort of weird gallery which I'm still not quite sure about, I have also been busying myself at work these couple of weeks, the barista has been teaching me lots of his experience from Columbia, and I haven't been able to focus on my photos in so long now. Time is really what I need in my life right now!
