Last Christmas

This time last year I was just embracing the start of my journey as a self-taught photographer. I brought my camera every place I went, and strived to find as many candid photo opportunities as I could. This year, I have found myself a completely different photographer, one who can already imagine a picture perfect moment before it even happens! I have spent this year learning and growing as an artist, and I have found myself being able to make money doing what I love so much--taking photos.
Even looking at these photos that I took last year, I can remember the 22 year-old woman behind the camera. She was nervous, curious, and excited; and yet, that woman never left (she's only getting started). Enjoy these Christmas themed photos from my portfolio from last year! All images are creative property of Cathy Lee Photography.

Share & enjoy--but please remember to give credit!

    i love photography and i love it ever
    since i took a class in High School.

    I've trying to save money to buy a
    cannon or nikon :) because i am dying
    to get good at photography.

    Did you learn on your own or did
    you take classes?

  2. Hi Melina!

    Photography is such a great creative outlet! I hardly know anyone who doesn't like it, and I think it's a type of art that every person can find a way to relate to.

    As far as cameras go, there are some really great ones that are inexpensive. You don't have to necessarily go down the DSLR route; you can always find some really great ones with decent MP for relatively cheap! My first camera I purchased off of Overstock for $100 and it was 12 MP!

    As far as my skill goes, everything I have learned is self-taught. I took one class way back in high school and hardly even remember what I learned back then. I am a firm believer that you don't have to go to art school to be an artist!

    Cheers! Thanks for stopping by!
