Greensburg PA Photographer | Winter Macro Photo Walk by Andrea Moffatt

January and February are definitely the hardest months of the year for most of us 365ers. We've passed the glowing lights and warmth of December, but we're not quite to the return of the light in March. It's dark, dark, dark and often dreary with very little hope of pretty snow to cover it all. 

When I'm met with a challenge in my daily shooting, I often get through it by, well- issuing myself a new challenge!

Tell Your Little Story: Photographing Your Real Life | Greensburg Photographer by Andrea Moffatt

It was 4:00pm and it was that Time of Day. Every day by that time, my feet ache, my nerves are frayed, the kids are tired, I'm hungry, etc. etc. etc. But with only an hour until dinnertime, collapsing onto the couch is the last thing I have time to do.

Story of Today: First Snow Play of 2016 | Greensburg Photographer by Andrea Moffatt

Finally. We were beginning to think the snow would never visit our little spot on the map. As soon as it began to fall, the kids' noses were plastered to the windows. I held them off as long as I could, but to no avail. I bundled them up till you could only see their squished faces and we out in the 18 degree cold.

Happy New Year! For most people, January 1st is a day of turning over a new leaf, making lists of resolutions, and planning for the year to come. But for many photographers, January 1st is like being issued a new creative license. A new year, a new project.

Tell Your Little Story: Using Perspective | Greensburg Photographer by Andrea Moffatt

When you are storytelling, one of the simplest things you can do to tell all of the story is think about perspective. It is incredibly easy to fall into the trap of standing in one spot like there is glue on your feet and ending up with 30 frames that are so similar you have play the "which thing is different" game to decipher which one you want to keep. To avoid falling into this trap, think:
