Many times when I go to a specific place to photograph, I am on a mission of learning and experimentation. This image is from such a photo shoot. My mission for this day was to experiment with light: hard light, soft light backlight, shadows, reflections, color. Yesterday’s post was a backlight image looking up to the sky from underneath a Japanese maple. Today’s image is an example of color and reflection.
Searching for different types of light helps me to be more aware of the beauty around me. I do not think there is bad light. Different forms lead to different perspectives of what is around me. As a learning photographer, my job is to make the best of what I see and feel.
