Enter the season of crap lighting for OOTDs.

I really hate Daylight Savings. I’d rather have more light at the end of the day than the beginning. I’ve never entirely understood the point of daylight savings in general. It’s always been annoying.

I got out my photography light with the diffuser umbrella and I think I have decent enough lighting now. It’s only going to get worse as the season goes on so I figured it would be best to try and figure out a good lighting routine now. I feel like last year I was all over the place with lighting on my photos. This isn’t great, but it’s the best I can do for now.

  1. It’s been a few weeks and I’m just starting to really feel messed up over the early darkness. I am hoping the measure we just passed in CA will become a law so we can be rid of this stupid time change.

    California Proposition 7, the Permanent Daylight Saving Time Measure, was on the ballot in California as a legislatively referred state statute on November 6, 2018. The measure was approved.

    A yes vote supported allowing the California State Legislature to (1) change the dates and times of the daylight saving time (DST) period, as consistent with federal law, by a two-thirds vote and (2) establish permanent, year-round DST in California by a two-thirds vote if federal law is changed to allow for permanent DST.


  2. I think it was something to do with the farmers being able to see the cows the needed to milk at dawn, but it applies to so few people (especially in the age of electricity) and it’s hugely confusing for children and exacerbates Seasonal Affective Disorder for those who have it. I am thrilled it’s shorter than it used to be, but would rather see it go altogether, and am unwilling to move to Indianapolis or Arizona to make it happen, ha.

    I have said before that I would love to see the clear lights put up at holidays stay up until March (or at least through Valentine’s Day) to help ease the harshness of those cold, dark, short days. I think it alleviate so much of the post-holiday bleakness, and it’s so lovely to be able to, I dunno, see where you’re walking and where houses are. I’m fine with blinking Santas being tucked away come epiphany (talking to you, Clark Griswold), but simple, nonspecific lights? Yes please.

    1. We usually do leave our lights up until February. We have colored lights on the house but I agree that plain lights would be nice until March.
      Seriously, Daylight Savings needs to go away entirely because it’s just not relevant anymore.
