Light as Subject

Carriage Hill Farm-2015--0934

Typically your subject is a person, a scene…something physical. You use the light to contrast your subject from the background or to enhance its form.

Then there are those wonderful moments in which you see the light and tune out everything else in the scene. The light becomes the subject. The light may take the form of a single ray, or the contrast of light and shadow.

Find some light & capture it.

  1. This is one of my favorite recent photos from you. And all because it was about the light. There is true grace in the atmosphere, with the source from the window and the beams of light falling across the textures of the wood and straw. Edward Hopper, another favorite of mine, loved to paint light on a wall as subject matter. I consider you to be in the same class of expertise about capturing light.

    1. Wow, that is a wonderful complement. Thank you very much. I’ll have to search out more of Hoppers paintings. All that I’ve seen had houses and people as the subject.

      Thank you, Amy.


    1. Thank you, Wendy.

      Jim and I were back in Detroit to see the museum last weekend. He called Saturday evening and Sunday morning, we were there. I thought about you and your girls. You would have loved being there again.
