The photography community amazes us. They really do. The way they are continuously thinking outside the box and rethinking what the norm is when it comes to photography is astounding. Nicki's photo is no exception. When we spotted it while scrolling through our IG tag, we stopped and studied it. We were mesmerized how she used a lace dress and light to place a perfect pattern on her subject as well as using it as leading lines. We are super stoked to have her in this

Babies are the most precious gifts on earth. We love to stare them for hours on end so that's why having newborn photos taken is super important. Time is fleeting and those small details that we adore like the flakes on the skin or that oh-so-sweet peach fuzz can be gone in an instant.

We are so giddy that Brisbane's own Romy Drew is our artist this week in The Story Behind. We've been fans of Romy's work for quite some time now and we've enjoyed browsing through her IG stream. When we came across this photo, we instantly stopped and studied it. Everything about it is absolutely extraordinary and exquisite. But, perhaps our favorite part is the details.

When you look at it, there's no insane amount of light bursting from the back, the colors palette consists of 3 main colors and you don't see the subject's face. BUT what makes this image stand out to us and why we wanted to feature it is because we love the artistic quality it possess. It has a bit of The Son of Man painting by

When Tina Rewlowksi was presented with an opportunity to take a home-schooled field trip to a train yard, there's no doubt about it, her camera was coming with her. The creativity of her image she shares with us today draws you in by all the leading lines and the small color palette surrounded by a sea of red. Coupled with her incredible depth of field and acute sense of rule of thirds, we had to feature her image in our series, The Story Behind.
