|I took this photo with my big girl camera and used three Kim Klassen textures, 2810, jamal and 0212.|
The word photography originated from two Greek words:
φωτός (phōtos), photos for ‘light’
γραφή (graphé), graph for ‘drawing’
Together they mean ‘Drawing with light’.
I love to draw with Light. I see Light and want to capture it’s beauty. I chase Light. I wait for the ‘right’ Light.
I observe Light and it’s endless array of qualities, how Light caresses each subject in a different way, sometimes softly, sometimes harshly. I move to see Light reflected on a surface, or so I don't see it's reflection.
My camera is my tool. My camera captures the Light it sees. Different wave lengths translate into different colors. Different intensities translate into lights and darks.
Photography is capturing the characteristics of Light in a given moment as it falls on an object or objects. The inspiration for an image may begin with an object, but it is truly is all about the Light.
|I took this picture with my iphone and textured it with the Kim Klassen texture 99.|
Today I am linking up with Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday. Today’s theme is light.
I hope wherever you are spring is starting to arrive.
Okay, that may be premature, but I still am hoping.
Have a great week!
