The photograph which got me accolades at my teen age.
This was the beginning of me getting out of my comfort zone. This was the first time I participated in a competition with a bunch of strangers of over 50 schools. Architecture was the theme and was given limited options to click a photograph that will make me a winner. This was not about me winning this competition, it meant more to me because this was the first time I’ll be showing my work to people and overcoming the fear of being judged by others. This was when I held a DSLR for the first time which was not even mine. With not knowing how to process a DSLR, I still managed to click pictures that I learned from watching tons of videos on YouTube.
The awaited results gave me anxiety for a couple of days but when it came out, it was worth it. I won my first ever competition. This is what motivated me to pursue my career further in Photography.
By overcoming all my fears and getting out of my comfort zone, learning and experiencing more, I will try my best to become a great photographer.
Cheers to a new start!
