light in love

This was actually the first test shot of a shoot with lovely AJ. I was figuring out my camera & flash settings and the flash was dialed up too high so it blew out the top corner of the shot.


I am definitely break the cardinal rule of exposure, but I feel like it works here. It's is blown out & harsh, yet blurry & soft. The subsequent shots weren't nearly as interesting, and ultimately the artist chose this shot.


Rules in photography are great guidelines, but as an artist you can chose to break and bend them to suit your vision. Plus, who doesn't like breaking rules? :P
