3 Ways to Capture Spring

I was born in spring time (actually, today is my birthday!) and it is my favorite time of year. It’s almost like the new year. It’s a time of rebirth. It’s a time to reflect on how the year is going. It’s a time a beauty. It’s a time of nicer weather (FINALLY!). It’s just a beautiful time. I love the way spring looks and feels. I love the feelings I get when spring time gets here. I love spring cleaning. I love the smell of spring. I just love spring.

1. capture the gorgeous colors

Spring is full of color. From pink to blue to red to yellow. There is color everywhere. I believe the beauty of spring comes from it’s vibrant colors. So make April an all color month. No black and whites! Pick a color and do a photography project of all the colors of springs. There are so many different ways you can capture the colors of spring. And on the plus side, they’re ALL beautiful. Embrace the color, the bright color. Because that is what spring is all about. Bright beautiful colors.

2. capture the light

Finally, the light is beautiful again. When it’s not raining (because, it’s spring, there HAS to be rain) go out and find the light! The weather is beautiful and the sun stays out a lot longer, it’s much easier to find the light. For me I find anywhere form 5-7pm is beautiful light. Find the light and make it work for you.

3. capture the details

There are so many details of spring. The flowers. The bugs. The rain. Pick a detail of spring and focus on it. Focus on the new life all around you. Take out that macro lens, dust it off, and start capturing the little things. Spring is a wonderful time to get inspired in your photography. Try something new.

Embrace the rain, also. Because there will be rain. But that can also be beautiful in your photos.

I am a photographer, a wife, a sister, and now a momma to be. I strive to capture the beauty in ordinary things. I love to photograph people, places, and things that I love and cherish. I am a lover of natural light, macro, lifestyle, and dark and moody images. I am a die hard Nikon fan, I love yellow starbursts, I am a pianist, and I am obsessed with photography, maybe a little too much!
