Photoshoot went well today, Danii and I were in the forest for about an hour until it started raining so we headed indoors. I dressed Danii in my vintage clothes and photographed her in her home environment, looking comfortable and content. I'll process the pictures and upload them here.

mark borthwick

A technique photographer Mark Borthwick uses to create his bright, dreamy like photos is after he has taken a photo on his film camera, he opens the back to expose the light to the 35mm film for a second before windng it on. Sounds crazy to me, but he must have practiced it enough to know what is the right amount of time to create the effect he wants.

This photo seems so peaceful to me, it's a beautiful landscape to relax in and read a book, like the model is doing. I've planned a photoshoot day with my friend Danii to take place in the woods, I'm going to bring my tent and we're going to take camping fashion photographs, I'm looking forward to it. :)

just stuff

'Last your burden on the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never permit the righteous to be moved' Psalm 55:22

What does a burden look like? Does my photo of Lara with the rubbish piled on top of her help to answer that question? Maybe, maybe not.

We gather so much stuff, physically and in our minds; thoughts upon thoughts, opinions upon opinions, it can become unhealthy. Stuff of the past, dark areas of your life, etc. What does the Psalm passage say about our burden? Give it to God. People do pray, and I don't think people see it as an abstract thing. When some people are in desperate situations, I do believe they will pray or think about praying...

And God can give you peace, rest, He can carry your load. And I've witnessed this, honestly, this is the truth. Jesus says:

'Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.'
