Qualtiy of Light and how to Anticipate capturing the best Possible photo
In my recent book Photographic Lighting for Everybody one of the cornerstones of good photography is how to identify the quality of light and apply it to making your photograph standout. All the great artist study light and it’s effects on the subjects it illuminates. Monet catherderal paintings are a great example of that discipline as discussedd in NPR series Monet.
The following Video is a true story of how I captured one of my most prized photographs in my 35 years as a professional. The image of Lake Phewa, Pokhara, Nepal was just awarded the coveted Communication Arts photographic competition in the ” for sale ” category. The image was also selected by the ASMP National as the second best photo of 2019 ( personal work) and nominated in the MasterCup International photography competition.
This short video takes you through the day I shot this image and the experience I had leading up to taking this image. For me, photography is spiritual and connects me to beauty of the world and awakens me to it’s potential. It forces me to be in the moment and appreciate each moment of my life. In this difficult time of where we are and are experiencing a profound sense of loss, going out ( with mask and staying 6 feet away) and taking photos can be very healing. Enjoy the show and please subscribe to this blog and my Youtube channel, for more details buy my book.
