Our theme for March is "light" and I've got to say, I'm a little obsessed.
Because I may or may not have burnt a few suppers because when I spot a blaze of glorious light shining through a window somewhere inside the house, suddenly the only important thing is grabbing my camera and getting some shots. (just look at that rim light! swoon!)
I like a dark and moody look and I like to let the light be the star so my camera is set for spot metering and I will under expose by up to 1 stop. My lens is wide open because-bokeh! And right now my fave lens is my nifty fifty.
The way I see things- finding beautiful light is a good reason to let dinner go to heck. Or really just about anything. Because there is always take-out and too soon the light fades.
” Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.”
