FINDING LIGHT

FINDING LIGHT

It seems these days everyone with a camera calls themselves a photographer. The mark of the professional is the understanding and use of light. Highlighting and shading a subject can drastically alter the mood of a photograph. Understanding light and how to manipulate it is an art form that a photographer will work on and play with their entire career. Working with light keeps it interesting for me and it truly makes all the difference in a final photo.

Black and White VS Color

It is an interesting thing…how the mood of a photograph can change based on the saturation or absence of color. I took this photo on a hike. It was a great day and a great many emotions passed through me over the duration of the expedition. When looking over my photos, I went back and forth as to how I wanted to remember the day. The colors were vivid yet there is a simple solace that comes out in the black and white version. I digress… when looking at photography, be it for portraits, head shots, fashion, or environmental, make the choice of color or black and white based on the emotion you wish to convey. After all, a picture, as they say, is worth a thousand words.

Festival of Lights

Light up my life - JoshI’ve said it before, but this time of year is truly magical. The creativity seems to soar! Josh and I are inspired by so much around us and today we bring you photos from a project we did inspired by none other than Christmas Lights!!!

Anyone can take a picture. We have Instagram to show us that! But it takes someone who understands light to be able to manipulate it and create art with it. These images here are shared from an exercize in capturing personality through light. There is a wide variety in the finished project which is unusual for us as we like to have a theme to the finish in the end product. Ah but light is fluid, like personality and so this project is all about mood and how light plays to those moods. Enjoy! Comment! Share! (Just please remember to give proper photo credit)

In this time of year we all enjoy the renewal the light and the New Year brings. It’s a hope and promise of good things to come. This season has been marred by an unthinkable event. Josh and I choose to find solace in the good and beauty that is out there and be reminded that there is far more of it than the other. Our holiday wish for you: Let’s revel in the joy that is children. Let’s play in the magic of the season. Let’s hold on to light. hope, and all things good. That said, let’s light it up!!!
