About two years ago, I used to go about my usual everyday life like most people do, not noticing all of the beauty around me. After I picked up a camera and started taking photos of my kids, I started to see the world in a whole new way. Once you start to see it, you can't un-see it.

I started to notice how light affected things, and how looking at something from a different perspective could change the whole scene. The whole world seems to be trying to tell us a story in the most beautiful and colorful display. It's like watching a movie, but it's all around us, and we're living it.

After becoming a photographer, I slowed down from this crazy fast paced world and started to appreciate the masterpieces that were before my very eyes. This was a life changing experience for me!

I want everyone to have this same experience. So I created a free photography course for anyone who wants to give it a shot. I show you how you can do this with a cheap camera and cheap lens. I've even used my cell phone when I didn't have my camera with me.

You can see more of my work and/or check out my free photography course on my website.

Slower shutter speed to lighten faces? Or post production?

I think people are missing the point--that becoming a photographer taught this person there is beauty to be found everywhere. All it takes to capture it is a change in perspective, or lighting, or focus..., or some combination of these. This isn't an article suggesting that a photographer will take the exact same photo better, but rather that a photographer knows what changes need to be made to capture an emotion with an image.

The editing has a lot to do with it, but you can notice some improvement on the way the camera is now positioned according to subject and light source, so the person would definitely have better results even if no editing was done to the photos.
