New for this drop, is I began adding photo editing notes along with my outtakes. This is a helpful process for me to walk through to understand my own editing process. I hope you enjoy reading these notes and it dives in a lot deeper to my process in a way that I haven’t written about elsewhere. The editing process is something I truly love, but on some mornings can be incredibly painstaking to choose the select photo. Would love for you to consider becoming a BugsyLand™ member to read these outtake notes.

A trend I think you’ll see throughout 2020, and perhaps 2021, are a lot more photos of sunlight shining through plants, flowers, and especially grass. This fern photo from August really hits me.

Among my favorites in this batch is November 28. I really wanted to include the highlight of the sun against the white pine. Though it was a difficult seleciton to make. Thank you to Tara, Will, and Lorynn for the date selection help on this drop!
