For The Love of Light

You hear photographers talk about light. We love light. A lot. Light can completely and totally change a photograph. While playing in my yard I was able to catch an example of meh vs. yeah! light.

Meh…..

Yeah!

I did not create the difference you see here in post-production….both of these photos were edited exactly the same. The only thing that is different is the light. Behind me to the left is a lot of bamboo….and also the sun. It was a breezy day and the sun was playing a game of peek-a-boo through the bamboo leaves. I waited patiently for the sun to hit this dried leaf…and snapped it up as soon as it did. Being patient was worth it- it took this photo from meh to yeah!
