Working against the light

I don’t know much about lighting…and am currently trying to figure out what makes “good” lighting or “bad” lighting…but I know what I like! I love that I am still so oblivious to photography stuff that I am free to just do whatever comes into my head without too much worry about “oh well this and that could be better, so it’s not even worth trying.” What excites me about the 365 project is focusing on a particular thing to work on (lighting – as was the case today, aperture, shutter speed, etc.) and then just incorporating myself into the shot.

So far it’s been fun…really fun.

    I really like what you did here. One of my favorite photographers, Chenin Boutwell, does AMAZING work with light. And she and her husband have phenomenal photoshop actions.

    you have a great eye in taking photos.. and that’s what makes the photographer good, not all the bunch of stuff about ‘how to shoot right’. i love this photo and your photography in general! this blog was a great discovery for me 😀 by the way .. what 365 project? do you take/post one photo for each day of the year?
