From the profit from this shoot I bought a below grade generic flash that became my only other equipment for a long long time. I'm proud of this photograph. I'm here at the very beginning of a somewhat uncharted journey.. Armed with nothing but passion.. And of-course ..this beat-up, raggedy secondhand camera of mine.#tybellophotography #photostories #startingsmall #journey" read the caption of her throwback picture.
