Heck yes! I am so excited to finally post this shoot! Every now and then I feel the need to take a step away from the usual tricks that I rely on to experiment with new techniques. Doing this keeps me excited about what I do and allows me to add to my bag of tricks and push my style forward. As I was putting this shoot together (see my embarrassing stick-figure shot lists on my Instagram feed), I was doing my best to figure out how I could add a layer of depth and interest to the final images and the trick I landed on was broken glass. I put a few different glasses from my cabinet in a cloth bag and, smashed them on the sidewalk in front of our house. After finding a few shards that I could shoot through, I was loving the way that the light was playing through each piece. Now, I have another fun little trick to work in to my style and this summer I plan to spend some time finding a few more!

If you are a photographer (or any type of artist), devote some of your time to personal work in which you can experiment without the pressure of a paying client. I promise you that it will open up a part of your brain that you aren’t using and you will find something that can take your work a step closer to where you want to be.
