“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
Light, the essential element to the art form known as photography. Back light, key light, fill light, natural light, they all contribute in a different way and can change the story of your photograph. But the most important light is, your subject’s light.
What I mean by their light, is their essence and their emotion. Take the time to look through your lens, your own light, and connect. The untold alliance that you have between you and your subject is invaluable, even if brief, is lasting. It is more important than the location and wardrobe. You know you have felt their light when your photos are illuminating with emotion.
I had the honor of photographing these three nuggets a couple of weeks ago. I have gotten to know and connect with each of them and it shows in their photos. I was the photographer for their parents’ wedding, birthday parties, family photos, Christmas cards and modeling portfolios. Their mom actually said at our last photo shoot that what she loves about my work is that I allow the kids to be themselves and I capture their essence as it should be, candidly. I have invested in this family, and they have invested in me. We share light.
This is the norm you will notice and feel as you begin to book me for photo shoots. A connection is going to be made, and I will allow your light to shine.
