Natural Light

Much more alive and dimensional! The way to go. That window light is your collaborator but it changes all day and you have to revisit and learn to be close friends! Edward Weston waited for hours each day!

I love this, James. Really worthwhile!

What great series with amazing advances in exploiting the very nature of available light!

An example for all of us!

It’s hard for me to see differences as I am in San Francisco with out my monitor. Can you explain what you did differently?

San Francisco... Wow I love that place!! Less contrast and saturation, theses lenses that I am using are bright across the whole frame very little light fall off, especially at small apertures.

We also have, at times, (like last night), Unusually low lying clouds in the evenings, behind which the sun can set privately!

James,
Your picture still has more inherent drama on the light you chose.

James,

I rebuilt and entire kitchen wall just to get light you have here.

Waiting, waiting and watching, moving the composition in and out, is what I do.

I learned this from studying Edward Weston.

Sometimes he spent weeks with one delicately balanced shell for the right cloud to move in front of the sun.

As you can see it’s very rewarding.

Yes variety and change is good!
