Lexicon Of Light

There's no such thing as bad light, just different light. The language of light is a conundrum, it's transformative, it hides and reveals, it adds dimension, shape and exaggerates texture.

I love photography with a sense of presence and in that respect there's nothing I like more than backlit scenes, or light which punches downwards like stage lights. Give me a couple of hours in the landscape with those conditions and they are moments which are hard to displace in my mind's eye, but mix it up with a dispersing mist and you have the ingredients for truly ethereal story telling...
