Sometimes it’s nice to journey out during golden hour to shoot with no specific plan.  As an artist, it gives you relaxed time to let go of the pressure that paid shoots sometimes create, and allows for exploration and growth within your photography style.

With portraits I usually keep the aperture around 1.8 since I love the soft look.
