February 2018 | Personal Work + P52 Project | Midland, Michigan, and Naples, Florida

It's half way through March, so I thought it was about time to recap my February p52 project work. February's theme was Minimalism and Negative Space, which I am a huge fan of. Negative space, in a nutshell, is the framing of your subject (the "positive" space) with an ample amount of the subject's surroundings to create a dramatic effect and draw the eye to the subject. You can see my weekly posts on my instagram - @momentsthatmakeus.

This post also includes my favorites from my personal work from February. It's safe to say that almost all of my personal work for this month is from our trip to Florida - I am not particularly inspired by the half thawed snow and muddy roadsides here in Midland.

Oh hey there world, nice to see you after almost a year! in 2018, I have decided to complete a Project 52 photography challenge, where I share (at least) one photo a week for the entire year. I'm participating in a themed project, run by a few fab ladies over at p52 Clicks, where there is a new photography technique explored each month. January's theme was low light, which is not something I have voluntarily worked on in the past. I've discovered that in low light situations, I lean towards contrast situations created by shadows and bold light, versus the softer tone that can often characterize "low light" images.
