Light & Shadow {Experiments in Indoor Photography}

Hello, dears!

I had so much fun with the pictures for this post! Usually I just take photos of pretty things, but this time I pushed myself to create photos that tell stories rather than just show what’s already there. Over the past week or so, I’ve been finding interesting patterns of light and shadow around golden hour and incorporating them in my photos. We live in an old farmhouse with big windows that make great photo opportunities, but you can also use any sort of windows, blinds, lamps, and so on.

Light and shadows are two (free!) things to be happy about, so I think they’re worth noticing. 😉 I hope you guys enjoy these pictures!

Chiaroscuro Apples {Experiments in Photography}

Hello, dears!

It makes for really dramatic, artistic-looking photos, and was also used a lot by master painters like Rembrandt.

SO, now that we’re done with the little word lecture, let’s get on to the photos! 😀 I really enjoyed attempting to make ordinary apples look special and yet homey at the same time. Enjoy my experiments!
