Light (& Shadow)

Thursday, February 28, 2013
Photographers talk a lot about light. In fact, many of us are boarder-line obsessed with it. (Guilty.) We analyze it; we study it's characteristics like hue, direction or softness.  But there is, quite literally, a darker side of light that is almost more important, and that is shadow.   In order to really understand light we need to also understand it's darker half, shadow.

When a photographer talks about beautiful light, they are really speaking, whether they realize it or not, about the interplay between light and shadow - interesting lighting creates interesting shadows.  A good photographer will use both light and shadow to create an emotional connection with the viewer much in the same way a writer will pit a hero against a villain.  So, the next time you see a picture that you love, take a look at the shadows.   You might be surprised at what you find.

Happy Valentine's Day

The morning was cold. The skies an odd mix of impending snow and promising light. For a Sunday morning, we woke early, filled with the excitement of new discoveries waiting to be had.  There is something alluring about the promise of the unknown and chance to explore it.  Moments like these remind me that the best way to live is go forth boldly into the unknown.  Exploring the what ifs and maybes are what make the journey of life worthwhile.
