Shots and Thoughts

Photos and comments as I explore my passion for photography. Written to and for myself as a journal to track major moments and minor observations as I continue to evolve my visual art. 

Natural Light

Natural light portraits can turn out nice in black and white. Elysia has a great natural happy smile, so tried the moody look here.

Pro Tip: These shots look cool at F1.7 but you really need to lock in focus on the eyes. It can be hit and miss so take more shots than usual. Here we took 30+ shots and all but 3 worked well.
