It's All About The Light

July 15, 2021  •  1 Comment

When I made my first image with a Single Lens Reflex camera in 1969, one of my mentors, Keith Kettering said, "It's all about the light." Sounds obvious but the message was really an understatement of what I needed to pay attention to throughout the process of finding to printing. Even today I admit that I take the light for granted, especially if I'm outside in the middle of the day in the bright, bright sun. If I'm thinking properly, I look for shadows, tones, gradients, etc., that might give a hint of depth and mystery. This is another image from the Belmeade Estate...the abandoned chapel at St Francis de Sales, a school for girls. I sometimes wonder what happened to Keith, does he still live in South Dakota, does he still take pictures, does he still look for the light?
