How I learned to do photography? by ME {The Amateur Beginner Photographer}

I have been asked a couple of times how I learned to take photos
and my go to answer is always Pinterest.
If it wasnt for Pinterest I would probably not be where I am today
as far as blogging, photography and crafting.
That place is so inspiring.
It is like going to college and taking classes with out all the tuition.

By no means do I call myself a professional anything.
I always have such a hard time comparing myself to others.
Which is something I am working on a great deal.
I just see so many brilliant people on
Pinterest and think to myself, "How did they get to that level?"

Tonight I thought I would share with you some of the places
 that I thought were the most insightful for me.
Most of the time, I study a photo and just try to figure out 
what it is that makes me love it so much.
Is it the light? The pose? The location? The props? How they edited the photo?
And I just try to practice it as much as I can.
I fail about 80% of the time but I just keep going until something clicks together.

Ok so here we go.
