So, I am so far from being any kind of a good photographer that it is not even funny, but i still love it anyway. It helps to have a cool brother named Mark who really is a good photographer who I can steal skills from. He dropped a couple hints about light, and I started experimenting. See, light is my favorite aspect of any beautiful photograph. Just like my philosophy that it is better to have a n ugly outfit with great hair than a great outfit with ugly hair, so is my philosophy on photography. It is better to have a so-so subject with incredible light, then an awesome subject with poor, horrendous light. Please to enjoy the following experimental photographs where I was messing around with Mark's suggestions on how to use flare to make a photo look cool. Also please ignore the wires and RV in the photos of the clouds. Soon I will aspire to my roof. Until then, this short person has to use the horizon she is given, cruddy RVs, and trees, and light poles and all. By the way, Isn't this tree beautiful outlined so perfectly against the golden sky? I wish I could have photographed it better. In real life it was breathtaking.
