monochrome & mint

Last week, Ashley, my lovely photographer, and I did a little experiment with lighting for my photos. Natural lighting is what almost everyone uses right now for their blogs, but studio lighting lends a completely different touch to the finished photo. It is used in professional fashion photography to create very different styles from what can be achieved with natural light. It "takes it to a new level", if you will.

Ha, I love that phrase.

Check them out and let me know what you think! xx
