This picture is a perfect representation of my last few months journey into the world of photography.
It symbolizes most of what I've learnt from my experiences, from inspiring photographers and my actions based on my own set of values.
Needless to say, it means a lot.
What's funny about this image is that there's really nothing special about it. But it has a lot of personal meaning.
This picture is sharp and colourful, but also full of contrast. It was also shot in manual focus with a flash in an extreme low-light situation.
All of these things are skills I've picked up over the last few months, constantly pushing myself to improve them.
Seeing it manifest in this form is extremely pleasing. Finally, it's also a major point of growth for me because of the way I've edited this. It's me letting go of my stubborn view about post-processing.
I've been able to embrace technology for what it is and am happy with the results.
