Sunday, my sister and I had about an hour to shoot some pictures together. It was about 4:00 when we started so the lighting was not ideal, but I enjoyed the challenge. Plus, I had fun - what a blessing it is to have family as best friends!
As I was editing through the pictures, several really stood out to me which I just love! Here they are and a little bit of why I love them.
Black and white is not always my favorite. It just has to be that perfect picture to "pop" - this is probably my absolute favorite B&W that I have personally done.
Love the warm tones:
And then there is my favorite location: the new chicken coop. :)
(And in case it sounds funny that I'm all about the "style" of the photo and not the subject, yeah, I do like the subject too ;))
For Your Enjoyment
And there were many more pictures that we liked. Some of them I did not particularly care for how the lighting turned out (considering we had to dodge sun spots) but it was a good learning experience for me.
There is this soft glow look that is really popular. It isn't my favorite for everything, but I did want to catch a little sun-glare. It does give a nice "dreamy" feel but I was sad when I discovered that I made one of the most common photography mistakes: it looks like she is "eating" the plant (note to self: remember to check for trees growing out of heads, elbows being cut off, etc., etc., etc.).
Next time, I'll share about the little "photobomb" we had. :)
