Well, here we are. Nine pictures down and one left. I have to say, it’s been fun looking back at some of my favorite pictures from the last few years and thinking over the circumstances that brought them to be. And for number one, I couldn’t be happier with the memory it brings.
one year later
Does it show? Haha. I know, I know – it’s not fair that I chose a shot that I’m a part of to be my favorite. But who could blame me? Our first anniversary and a fun, moody shot! Frankly, some of the effect came from poor planning on my part. I had intended on taking a picture before we went off to dinner, but things just didn’t work out that way. Once we came back home, the sun had already been down for an hour or so. So, you work with the light that you have on hand. I set up some remote flashes and experimented, but nothing looked quite right. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but something was just not working. The final product that you see came from a realization that a lot could be said in a picture that didn’t show off our faces well. It’s all about body language! So I just used our doorstep overhead light. What you see matches what the natural eye would get. Even better, the high contrast and warm, tungsten light help make this picture look and feel like a memory – exactly what it’s meant to be as a portrait of “our first anniversary”.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my informal little countdown. Time to look forward to exciting things yet to come! Pay attention right here to continue to see what the latest is, hear about fun opportunities, and more…
