The learning curve has been long and hard (my acceptance percentage is coming out of the toilet a little dab) and I still have MUCH to learn. I TRY to have a diverse portfolio but I just can't seem to conquer the success of taking pictures of SOME or flowers. I wish i could, because there are some people out there that take some really amazingly awesome beautiful ones!!

Great milestone! Don't ever get discouraged, we learn from everything and try to keep on getting better photos every time. If there's a type of photo that is not coming out as you'd like, keep practicing and taking more photos and trying new settings until you get it the way you want.
