For my June “light” project, I wanted to document a day’s worth of…well, light. I was aiming to show how the changing of light throughout the day can really play into one’s emotions and state of being. I so love the how the early morning sunlight highlights the mist in the grass when I get up for work. It’s so calming and energizing at the same time. I love how harsh and unrelenting midday summer light can be – as if the sun is asserting it’s power over us. And who doesn’t love a good sunset?!
My plan was to take a lot of photographs.
And then, before I could really begin, my camera decided that it wasn’t going to shoot anything. At all. And I was away from home with no other option. I have tried all the suggestions given by the Canon technical support website. Nothing.
So instead of spending time photographing, I spent time trying to figure out the dang error message and fix my 30D. I finally gave up and decided to snap some light-focused shots using my iPhone and fun Hipstamatic app (love love love!) instead. So, here you are: some shots that capture some “light” moments, sort of along the lines of my initial idea. I’ll try the documentary again later.
