I love lines. Leading lines especially - all these lines point to what's really important!
Photography is only about one thing. Light. Without it, there's no photography. The word photography, is based on the Greek: Photo - light, graph - write. Light writing. And I search out the late afternoon light to find the gold. This light kisses everyone and thing with this warm wonderful feeling you wish would last forever...
Our minds are comforted by patterns. While there are adrenaline junkies in our midst who constantly strive for excitement,, they too crave and are comforted by patterns. It's just that their patterns are thrills. The mind loves patterns, they are paths, maps of what happens next. It's comforting to know what happens next. Here is a image from last week. The repeating wood grain and lines of the benches - pull the eye thru the image - you know what happens next! I chose to make the image b&w to accentuate the patterns. The space was all wood and I had to either bounce the flash off the walls/ceiling and get an 'orange' glow or use direct flash that would have created a distracting shadow. I chose the bounce. While I could neutralize the orange tones, I felt the image was pretty strong in composition and I could strip out the color and have a strong image. And it is.
Last week, I photographed a beautiful young lady in a local temple, Oheb Shalom in South Orange. The main sanctuary has the most amazing stained glass windows. I arrived early, before my clients and took a few close ups.
