There’s so much beauty in this past week’s album. You guys chased the light (and sometimes lack thereof) like no man’s business! If you haven’t checked it out, you need to! Way too many gorgeous shots to feature them all!
Our featured images this week come from Rachel Clelland and Rachel Zinanti. Rachel Clelland’s image is so full or warmth and emotion while still clearly winter. Rachel Zinanti’s image has great composition and is a perfect capture of a pocket of warm(looking) winter light.
New this week
Was it a little challenging to chase the sunlight last week? (Thank you days and days of clouds…) Well, let’s take what we’ve been dealt and photograph winter’s darkness. Catch the lesson here!
Seeing all the hype about Lensbaby lenses? We are going to be interviewing Camilla Winter-Moore who is a Lensbaby pro! Have questions about her work or the lenses? Drop them here!
