A few months ago, I came across #irenerudnykphoto on YouTube. She inspired me to start shooting portraits. I decided to invest in a new camera, and I purchased my first Canon EOS 2000D with a 55mm kit lens. I barely knew this camera and didn't have much experience using/managing light, but I just went out and started shooting. I was determined and confident that I can pull this off. The first images I shot were ok but not what I wanted, so I purchased an 85mm portrait lens and started shooting again.
