My daughter learned an interesting fact today about photography and light. I visioned this photo in my head before I ever captured the shot. As soon as I saw the possibility of actually being able to capture it I yelled for Madison and Samuel to hurry, hurry, hurry. They thought this was really neat but Madison is the one who stuck around to do her posing act. Before we were able to take another shot a cloud passed over the sun. She was upset and wanted to know why we couldn't take any more of these types of shots. I then began to explain to her the value of light when it comes to the art of photography. In fact, someone told me one time that "Photography is Light!" Without light there would be no image, but with it, ooh la la, the possibilities are endless! In my opinion, the art of photography has lent itself to allowing so much more where light is concerned, allowing many types of light to be used. Shooting into the sun is a very good example. I love the sunlight and it can be manipulated in many ways. For this photo we just allowed the sun to make our shadow, posed in an interesting way, tweaked it a mite in PS and there you have it.
