Project Something Beautiful - Balance

Project Something Beautiful - Balance

I'm part of a wonderful group of talented photographers. We met through instagram, and although we are spread right across the globe, we bond through our love of photography, particularly emotive imagery. Through those connections, a wonderful concept was formed: Project Something Beautiful. The idea is to take one word each month, and explore the meaning behind that word through photography. This month, our word is BALANCE.

January - Low Light Photography Challenge

January - Low Light Photography Challenge

If you're into photography and you're on instagram, you've probably seen (or participated in) one of the many photography projects or challenges out there. I'm the first to admit, I'm TERRIBLE at committing to photography projects. It's a combination of the time factor, the pressure, and going through phases where I kinda lose my mojo a little (it happens to the best of us). However, when a new type of challenge popped up this year, I knew it was going to suit me perfectly. It's called p52clicks, and it focuses on ONE technique each month for a year - which is perfect for a busy working mama like me. January was all about low light. Click through to view my fave low light images from this month!

I still feel as though I have a ways to go, but that excites me more than anything, knowing new opportunities for growth and development are always around the corner.

First Time with the Helios 44-2

First Time with the Helios 44-2

The further I progress with my photography journey, the more I am beginning to fall in love with imperfect images... Grain, sun flares and out of focus images used to terrify me. Now, I simply love the texture that grain adds to images. I seek out sun flares, and I don't really mind if an image is out of focus, so long as it tells a story...

Golden Hour by the Lake

Golden Hour by the Lake

It's no secret that for many photographers, the favoured time to shoot is that glorious last hour of the day. And for good reason! The light is softer and more luminous, with a beautiful yellow hue (hence the term "golden hour"). A couple of weeks ago, I decided to take advantage of this beautiful light and took my littles down to the lake for a quick session.
