Now our first image on our left is back when I was very new to photography with a DSLR. I have the right ideas for the shot, but the hardware and execution of the shot were poor. The next shot was maybe a year ago or so and is significantly better, although it still has its flaws. And the most recent shot on the right, I feel like through better equipment and more experience, I've gotten a better control over framing and composition of an image and how to utilize the strengths of a lens (such as bokah.)
I always like to take the opportunity to look back and acknowledge progress as a reminder to keep pushing myself forward.
