Hi Lexis.

Great question. Personally, I find bigger groups a lot more challenging. Trying to get everyone posed and everyone to look the same way at the same time and smile is quite tasking. Also if it is a group of smaller children that you are working with, you have to keep everyone's attention and hope that no one starts crying or gets upset. These two shots require a lot more takes just to get that 1 perfect shot. Another task that even though I have been at this for years still gives me issues is the editing. Some people know just what they want because they saw something on pinterest that was done a specific way and you have to figure out as a professional how to make your customer happy. Certain edits take more work and sometimes there are other filters that the original had that you may not have and so you have to figure out how to edit it out to have that look. These are pretty daunting sometimes but you do the best you can. Other than this, photography is a great way to express yourself and your own unique style. You can take 10 people and put them in the same class and teach them all the same things and still get 10 different results when it comes to style and edit. Each photographer has their own style. This is also true when finding things that are most challenging. What one may find difficult, another may do with ease. It is all the old cliché of "to each his own".

Good luck on your journey. Hope this helps.
