I recently decided that it’s time to go trough all of the photos that I have and see if I can organize them by years.
A lot of the photos from 10 years ago, or more – I wasn’t able to retrieve.
With life going by, changing several laptops, relocation and so on – I realized that right now I only have a fraction of the files that I had back then.
Here is what I have – my collection of photographs from 2010 in a slideshow –
Those were my first steps towards photography.
My weapon of choice ( if I could even call it that ) was a 10 MPx point and shoot Fujifilm A170 A180 camera, that had no manual mode.
Actually I didn’t even know what a manual mode is, at that stage.
Still after reviewing my images I did noticed that I was already making some deliberate choices when it comes to framing, point of view and composition.
I saw that I was taking few similar shots from different angles in order to include all the elements I wanted in the frame.
Also on 2010 was one of the first times, that I remember, when I interrupted my daily routine in order to take a photo of a colorful bull statue, which really grabbed my attention, for some reason.
The image quality seems dreadful now but it was ok for it’s time.
My horizon wasn’t straight, I had a lot of exposure errors and other mishaps but I those photos are part of my journey as a photographer and that’s why I feel that they are worth preserving – even if it’s just in a slideshow 🙂 .
There is absolutely no post processing applied on the images – back then I was clueless on post also, so I decided to keep the photos exactly as they were…
Even though I felt a strong temptation to fix some things here and there.. and everywhere 😉
