All you need is light!

All you need is light!

Yep, that’s right. All you need is great light… LIGHT IS PHOTOGRAPHY. It doesn’t matter the location or the subject… without good light.. your images will be horrible. That’s the name of the game in this business.  Here’s one I recently stumbled on and never posted… but decided to edit this beautiful winter light wonder.

great light

beautiful light in the forest in Blackwood, New Jersey. 

This was taken in the Deptford/Blackwood area, here in NJ.  The location was picked for its great light. Here’s the thing. Winter is TOUGH.. Everything is dead… Everything essentially. It’s cold, damp and miserable. However, the image still speaks because there was pretty winter light and the location that was chosen was perfection for this. Lately, I’ve been going back and looking at old work to see if any images may speak to me that perhaps that I never posted and this was one of them. I decided to edit it in my current ways and feel like the image speaks to me a bit. I love the wind in her hair and the rim lighting around her hair and backside and how she is interacting with the dogwood stems.

Find the light… and you will have beautiful images. No matter what and where.

Thanks for stopping by and have been a bit dead on this blog here and decided to post a bit today! Ha!


Happy Shooting, my friends!
