How Can Photography Shape You As a Person?
Did you know that photography can shape you as a person? I didn’t when I started photography, either.
As talked about in my episode with Tyrie, there are people who like photography, people who love photography, and people who LOVE photography. And as someone who LOVES photography, I absolutely adored chatting with Tyrie about photography, too! This girl LOVES photography just like I do and catching up with her and hearing about her creative growth was just the total best. Tyrie is adorable and her episode was a total blast!
Grab that coffee and that editing list, too! We’ve got so much to chat about!
