Always Trying

I consider myself a "natural" light photographer. I just prefer it. For the longest time, I have to confess, it was because I was afraid of manipulated light. I didn't love the "flash" look, it always looked unnatural and contrived. I've come to learn that it doesn't have to look that way and that incorporating flash and continuous studio lighting can be not only helpful but really fun too.

A studio lighting playdate with a wonderful photographer friend of mine recently was not only enlightening and reaffirming, it was just plain fun. The moral of the story is to just keep on trying new things even if you think you don't "do" that or "hate" that look... I guess in short keep an open-mind and explore. It has a way of creeping in and inspiring in unanticipated ways. Happy Shooting!
