Photography is an amazing way to tell a story without words, and this project has really proved that to me. In some of my pictures, I took a single snapshot of just a small part of a bigger moment. In others, I tried to capture details that many people don’t notice right away.  It was interesting how much elements such as aperture, shutter speed, and perspective could affect a photo, and through this project I learned how much really goes into one. It turned out that the winter season, though dark and cold, can still provide for beautiful photos!
