Follow the Light

by Linda

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.”
– George Eastman -

LOVE these shots Linda! I think we've all burned a few meals capturing the light, but like you said, it is so worth it.

Such beautiful light in these photos! And I love this month's theme. I'll love it even more if the sun would stop playing hide-and-seek in my neck of the woods. Our gallery should glow!

Gorgeous! I love the dark, moody look also. I need to work on finding beautiful light inside.
