Photo 52: A Play on Light

Playing with Shadows - Week 1

“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.” - George Eastman


Ultimately the job of a photographer is to see the light - glowing evening light, ugly indoor light, an absence of light - and decide if and how to use it in the images they take.  With that in mind I am embarking on a 52 week project with a group of talented and diverse women that I have come to know and admire over the past year.  Together we will support and encourage each other to play with light based on a common overarching theme.  Several weeks will be spent exploring each theme so that we can really dig in deep, have fun, and take creative risks.  

Our collective adventure is called Photo 52: A Play on Light (the brainchild of Kelly Roth Patton) and our first month's theme is Shadows.  Here is my take for the Photo 52 debut!

To see everyone else's amazing work, please continue along the chain. Next up in our blog circle is the talented Julie Kiernan.  Take a moment to check out her creative interpretation using shadows.
