But I am progressing. I think that it's okay to take a look back and go through it, because who knows? You may find something you overlooked when you were busy trying to progress. The picture at the top of this post was taken in the first few months of receiving my SLR and I was just randomly shifting through my pictures in lightroom and came accross this! It needed a bit of tweaking to make the colours a bit more vivid but other than that I left it alone. I was a person that thought I wouldn't like to be one of those people that overly processes their pictures. I mean, if you like it then feel free to do so, because its the way you're expressing emotions and conveying what you want to... convey. I'm now started to get into the habit of shooting most things in RAW because it gives me an option of editing without too much loss in the photos. I still prefer to keep them looking as natural as possible though, cause that's how I like my photos :)
Soooo my point is to take a look back every few months, or if you think that's too much, then every year. Some of my favourite photos that I've taken are ones I overlooked or didn't remember taking. I'm trying to take the same approach with my weight loss as well. "OMG she lost blah bla blah in blah bla blah!".... of course she did! I'm not her, I'm different so my body and genes will behave differently. That's how I'm staying sane so far!
