It happened again. Some people who work with me discovered that I’m into photography. All of the usual questions came out as they started flipping through my photos. Once again, I found myself trying deal with perception vs reality. Here’s how that usually works.
Motion photography means many things. I know photographers use it to convey a sense of action or even to help isolate a subject. Perhaps I’m a bit odd because I use it to take a subject’s mind off the fact that she’s being photographed.
Many photographers have long known about the beautiful quality of window light. It works on anything from food to portraits. I’ve never really embraced window light portraits in the past, so it was good to have an opportunity to explore in Cuba.
Everyone talks about beautiful light, but hardly anyone does anything about it. People talk about strobes that can overpower the sun, and that can be cool. Expensive, but cool. Sometimes you can get a cool result without a lot of expense.
