In Sarah Wilkerson’s book Capture the Moment she gives some great info to get you started. I believe she gives a basic understanding of:
Natural Light
Composition
Storytelling
Fine Art
Black and White
Low Light
As well as some other helpful tidbits for us beginners.

I was very grateful this was not a technical book. “During daylight hours, turn off the overhead lights, lamps, and other light sources in your home before you start shooting. Pay attention to the natural beauty of the light around you, and allow it alone to illuminate your subject or scene.” That just sounds so simple and easy to do. And it was:)

I used my favorite model and our own backyard to test out some of Sarah’s ideas.It was so fun to play and have a guideline like her book to follow. Make no mistake, this is basic, but if you are at all like me and are used to winging it this book could be just what you need to purposely get that great shot.12191213_456354277882147_1310959169744221086_o

What began as a place to blog about the books I read has become a place to share my life. I have so many things I want to share, out loud, but have always been afraid of what others think. That fear was consuming until now. If I have anything to share here that someone else is experiencing and my words could help them...it is worth enduring negative comments. Please know this upfront, I am not a professional writer. My grammar, punctuation and tenses, are often wrong. However, the words and stories are coming from my heart and my life. I hope you will find it refreshingly imperfect, like me. Gr8ful-E-His
