As we come to the end of another month, in addition to wondering why time flies, I find myself wondering about the magic of light.
When light streams in my windows, casting shadows, I cannot resist. I have countless pictures of light falling across various objects in my house. Someday, someone is going to look at them and think I had quite a love affair with mundane things. Like this salt and pepper set. But to me, there was something magical about them that day.
When the first light of day wraps everything in it's golden glow, I find far too many things to photograph. Flowers and leaves, bugs and critters are all magical in that light.
I am fascinated at the way light creates magic in my camera. Things I cannot see with my eye are captured with my camera. There's magic inside my camera.
This past month, David DuCheminwrote about Vision Driven Exposures. This really speaks about letting light work for you in your photography. He then followed up with Vision Driven Exposures, a Clarification.
Last year, he wrote Find the Magic. The thing that I liked the most about this was when he said that what you are really after is the moment when you say "oh my God, look at that!"
yeah, I do that a lot. Then I take a picture. Might explain the ginormous amount of photos on my hard drive. But it's magic. I love that.
How about you?
Do you look for magic?
