Harnessing the Light

As every photographer knows, light can be your greatest enemy or a valuable ally.

You can stand under the scorching summer sun, trying to capture the beautiful square in a little Mediterranean town, fighting the light intensified by the whiteness of the stone facades. But if you step in the shade of the old olive tree, the same scene transforms into a beautiful dance of shadows.

Or you can stand in the darkness that renders your camera useless…until you light up a candle and capture not only the light, but the warmth and intimacy of the moment.


For Christmas I treated myself with books Life In Natural Light and Natural Light, so now I am trying to explore and experiment with light.

As always, be so kind and check other Monochrome Madness entries at Leanne Cole PHOTOGRAPHY.
