This week is my term break so I finally got around to editing the photos I made during the Women’s March in Austin. A month has passed since the march, and I’ve had plenty of time to process the significance of participating in such a monumental global event. It’s hard to put into words, but I am thankful to be working toward justice with so many amazing comrades. This experience also helped me realize how much I am ready to develop my photograph skills. Even though I’ve been making pictures since I was in elementary school, I still have so much to learn. Once I’ve met all the requirements for graduation and licensure, it will be great to delve in—I’m especially interested in improving angles, framing, and (gulp!) asking strangers to make their picture. I’d also like to get a new (more portable) camera with lens options. For now, I’ll continue to work with what I have and enjoy the process.
p.s. You can read more about my process and experience making the above photographs at the historical Women’s March here.
