I'm trying to get much better at photography, and it's so helpful to be able to see beautiful shots for inspiration. The other day, I was happy to stumble on photography by two sisters at Perfection Makes Me Yawn. I LOVE the lighting in their photos and their subtle attention to detail. Everything just blends wonderfully.
As if I didn't already want an elephant necklace, now I'll have to go on the hunt because these photos told me I need one. I love the positioning and the angles in the photos. I'm oftentimes a straight-on type of person, if that makes any sense (like in the top photo). Now added onto my list of photography goals: experiment with angles.
Oh, if only you could see me over here gawking at these details. I guess I need to paint my nails two-toned also! So yeah, I want to be able to drag my big camera around and actually take (good) impromptu photos with it. I always have to use my iPhone for shots that aren't staged / need to be taken QUICKLY. And when I stage photos, it takes me about three hundred years to get the shutter speed and aperture correct, and then I take one million photos to choose about three from. You live and learn, though! It's exciting to think where I'll be with photography in one year from now.
What about you? Are you learning (or plan to learn) something new that excites you?
