My one little word for 2013 is light. I would like to bring more light into our house. I would like to be more light-hearted. I would like to be able to see things in a different light – from a place of optimism and compassion rather than pessimism and self doubt. Most of my journey with light this year I think will be a quiet one that I explore and keep to myself.
But there are other aspects of light I would like to share here. I also want to explore and experiment with capturing light – morning light, afternoon light, low light, sunlight, shadows, etc. I used to think “the brighter the better” made for a good photo so this year I have a few bad habits to break (overexposing and washing out shadows to name a few). This will be at the forefront of my mind as I’m taking photos. My plan is to share one (or two) photos a week here. These are my light captures for week 1.
