Skyscape, August 8, 07

“Photography” doesn’t mean “shopping for cameras.” It’s derived from Greek words meaning “Drawing with Light.” The best light for your subject can make all the difference. - New York Photography Institute

I read that and thought of this photograph. I think that the world God created is so amazing & the light that is spread over it allows it to be everchanging. Ever notice how light effects everything. Turning the light on in the bathroom in the middle of the night can really effect you, YIKES! Lighting some candles makes an evening romantic. Like this photo, the setting sun can turn the sky into the most beautiful painting you've ever seen.

What can I say? I've been inspired!

Lighting Test, Ruby's fish

OK, I know. This isn't the usual. I was testing out the lighting in Ruby's room when I took this. Every time I see it I can't help but stop and stare! There is just something so striking about this simple little toy and the composition of this off the cuff shot. It looks so happy and, might I add, so well lit!

Candids, Ruby & Alex

I went location scouting last weekend with my trusty assistants. I'm always sure to get a few lovely photos when I have these two in tow!
