I approached my beginning photography class with fear this semester. I've always felt more comfortable drawing and painting (although I don't think I'm very good at it). Photography always seemed like a world I was never really part of, and I knew Photoshop would annoy the life out of me. But here we are, a month away from finals week, and I'm having a great time. My professor appreciates that I care about my assignments even though I've accidentally missed some, and I'm really loving being able to be creative in a different medium, so here are some of my favorite photos so far. My lovely friend Matt let me borrow his DSLR for the semester. He may not get it back. Don't tell him.
