light leaks

The way my apartment is situated results in us not getting a lot of light during the day and a balcony that looks at the back of another apartment, therefore rarely gets much use.  However, for maybe 30 minutes a night during the spring and summer we get the best kind of soft, golden light as the sun sets.

It's impossible to get pictures of a full outfit with my 50mm lens in such a small space (the type of wide angle lens with large aperture I'd need would probably be astronomically expensive), but I love seeing what the light can do.

That wicker bench that we found is about as comfortable as sitting on granite, but I think I'm going to make a real effort this summer to spend time out there and enjoy what little, pretty light we get.  Perhaps devising ways to knock some of my goals off my list.

  1. Such lovely photos! The lighting compliments this outfit nicely, even if it was difficult to get decent shots lol. At least your apartment has a balcony!

    I love everything, the top, the skirt, and the belt! :)

  2. I looove the 50mm despite the mile you have to walk to get a full shot of something. The end result is definitely worth it. Your shots look great! Natural light is the best light :)

  6. Man, you're lucky with that lighting! I was just recently looking back on some winter photo shoots and remembering how annoying it was to rush out before the light was gone around 4 pm, but feeling nostalgic for the golden light that doesn't seems to come anymore with the warmer season.
