    if someone ever calls u a mean name just respond “nah” like how do you even respond to that realistically 

    some person: hey asstown 
    you: nah 
    some person:

    i think my favourite part about this post is that out of all the mean names someone could realistically call you, they chose “asstown”

    We love your portrayal of beauty in unexpected places. Tell us about your use of natural light in your work. Do you often find yourself waiting for the light to be just right, before heading out for your desired shots?

    I do indeed find myself waiting in different situations for the light to change. The absolute best time for natural light photographers is 1 hour after the sun is fully risen and 1 hour before it sets. This is what’s known as the golden hour and it helps to achieve that illusive warm glow. My favorite natural light occurrence is known as the Belt of Venus. It happens after the sun has set before all the colors fade. It’s marked by a purple / red / green glow around the horizon.

    If I were to pick between morning and evening though, I’d have to say that the light cast by the sunrise is better. I can’t explain it, there’s just something in the air. It’s a really magical time of day If you can find the strength to wake up and get going!
