Studying Light

One of my photography goals for this year is to really study, understand and utilise light!! I want to be able to not only read a situation but to also be able to create a situation using light. Light is an amazing thing if you pay attention to it! It is also probably the most important photography tool to understand! So I'm going for it full steam ahead I am determined to fully understand and use light!!

So first of all I have started yet another workshop - yeah serious addict here!! I love them and they really help to concentrate your focus and get you trying new things! This time the workshop is all about light. Its NL201 from clickinmoms. I thought this would be a great way to start and I am thoroughly enjoying it!! 

So I though I would share a few of the images so far!! I have just been through my coursework for this week and am eager to get on with it too!! It is definitely pushing me out of my comfort zone, which is a good thing, but can at times be scary!!! 

I chose two very different subjects for variety!! (and also for my sanity as its impossible to get my toddler to pose). It has been a great week and I have already learnt loads!!!

This is one of my favourites from this week but then I am very fond of lashes shots :)

Every kids favourite toy!

Now for something completely different!! All the black and white just made me want a strong splash of colour!! We have had amazing weather here too and so many gorgeous flowers are in bloom that I feel like I need to take advantage of it!!! I also wanted to use two completely different types of lighting.

This was my other favourite shot from this week :)

I have now bought yellow tulips this week so I am bound to have a load of photos of them to share at the end of the week :) I couldn't help myself they are just so gorgeous!
