… is better than no light
FRISCO — Nothing wrong with a bright, sunny afternoon, but when it comes to photography, I’m drawn toward the very beginning and end of the day for the sake of the light, or, in some cases, the half light. It took me quite a while to accept that some darkness in an image is OK. Early in my photography days, I would said that the sunrise image is underexposed, without enough detail in the foreground. Even now, I still feel a twinge, and a strong temptation to tweak the shadow areas. But I’ve learned to embrace the shadows, understanding that they can help create a powerful image.
