Light in Unexpected Places

Last night’s photography practice was all about ambient light, and using it to create beautiful highlights and shadow.

We all know what makes ‘typical’ beautiful light- warm glowy sunsets, candles, even studio lighting.

I learned how to make an ugly boring street lights- on buildings, in alleys, in doorways – into beautiful light.  It helped that our model was lovely, and her porcelain skin just glowed under any light source.

I also learned to double check that darn (expletive omitted) zipper on my camera bag- and watch where I step.  I am clumsy.  I know that, I have accepted myself for who I am.  Therefore I must compensate to protect my valuables.  I am VERY lucky that my lens survived- long story short, I tripped and stumbled forward, and my one of my lenses dropped out of my sling-back bag and rolled down about 6 cement steps.  It was all in pursuit of a great shot though.  I am always stepping up, climbing up, walking through and laying down in places that are…. um… questionable.  It’s OK.  I heal.  My lens won’t.  So that abrasion on my shin will go away soon, and my lens will live to shoot another day.
