Old Photos, New Edits - Part III

by Alexis Burkland July. 18, 2021 183 views

As a teacher, I find it hard to balance my work life and my hobbies. I spend all my energy planning and executing lessons that months will go by before I realize that I haven't touched my equipment. My friend recently started a photo contest for her art studio. I didn't realize it when I started, but that was just the push I needed to get back to the thing I love.

With Korea under more restrictions than before, I find it hard to be inspired. I keep trying to practice my editing skills, but it's hard when most of my content is from 2-3 years ago. Sometimes I want to give up, but then I hold my camera and I know I just couldn't stop. I'm too happy behind my camera.

I've been learning how to use photoshop a bit more. I don't love how all of them turned out, but I am excited to keep practicing. It's a complicated program, But once you take time to learn it gets easier.

This second half of the year is already turning out to be crazy busy. However, I'm determined to not give up.
