This week in my photography class, the assignment was on light. The point was to capture light in it’s different forms. For example taking a photo that would otherwise be plain and normal if it weren’t for the light in the photo. We could use natural light or un natural light. We were given an extra week to complete this assignment, so in the end we should have 10 photos to turn in total. This is what I’ve done so far.

Wow, Ash, this stuff is gorgeous! Do you take the photos in B&W or convert them later? Do you play with the levels in your photo software or leave them exactly as you took them? This reminds me so much of the photography classes I took in high school, but your work is AMAZINGly better than anything I ever did. Keep up the good work!

Wow, thanks guys! I converted the photos to B&W, I like having the color ones as well, but it is a B&W photography class. In some of the photos I feel like you lose a bit of the impact of the light when changing it to B&W, so I definitely played with the levels to bring that white out and really see the contrast in the photo. Would love to see what you did in high school!

Wedding at Titchfield Abbey
Tichfield Abbey and Fareham Registry Office Wedding Photography I love when couples make the locations a priority. It can make such a difference to wedding photos. I often try to get couples to venture away from their venue to get a different look, as wedding venue photos can sometimes start to appear the same. Whenever I get to a new venue and the wedding planner wants to show me the best spots for photos, I immediately start looking for other spots, because I know he/she has shown those spots to every photographer and I really strive to deliver something different to each of my clients. When Jessica mentioned to me they'd like to do photos ...
This post has nothing to do with photography.  Just a personal reflection and thoughts about Japan.  Sharing things that have inspired me recently.I wanted to write about this subject, just a little bit.  So many times things like this happen and it's completely devastating, but I never feel I have the experience or knowledge to actually speak about them.  I still don't.  I'm afraid I'll say something stupid, or worse offensive, without even being aware of it.  I've never been to Japan, so how can I even start to relate to what's going on and the amount of devastation that is sweeping across that nation.  I can't.I've thought a lot re ...
