I love light. I love trying to take pictures that I’m told I shouldn’t take. I’ve frustrated myself rather this afternoon, after seeing this awesome shot from my newest photographer crush on instagram.
@me_and_orla: "Shooting into the #light again! Oh what a lovely light. It took me a long time to realise that it's ok to ignore the rules. Now when my dad lectures me for shooting something all wrong, I smilingly tell him that fifty nine thousand people think I'm doing just fine :)" #nature #flowers #spring #KodakMomentStory
Just everything about this is perfect. By contrast, spending 30 minutes standing on a chair, squinting into the lowering sun through a tree of blossom, and this is the best I achieved.
I’ll try again tomorrow.
