Light & Shadow
Some days I just want to take pictures. I don’t want to change the world with my photos, I don’t want to get new clients with the photos, I just want to walk around and take notes on how the light is interacting with the shadows.
Some guys are composition guys and some guys are lighting guys. I definitely fall into the lighting camp. They aren’t mutually exclusive when it comes to taking great photos but I define myself as a light guy becuase that is usually what attracts my attention to a particular composition.
I see a shadow raking across a wall or a shaft of light piercing through a curtain and I like the shape it takes. Then I will compose the frame around the light to capture what setting I like the best.
Inside the House
So this afternoon I spent an hour or so just searching in the rooms and hallways of my house trying to spot new light and new photos that I hadn’t seen before.
I take lots of photos of my house but it is always fun challenging myself to see the world around me in a different light.
These images are just a few of what I captured.
Do you have spots that you go back to again and again to photograph? What tricks do you use to keep it fresh and exciting?
