Composing with Light

Light is a key element in any photograph.  Composing around the subject of light can be both challenging and exhilarating.  I became an artist because I loved the way light interacted with everything it illuminates and I wanted to try to replicate through my images light's beauty and power.  There are two important principles in any composition.  One is to perceive and then express where the light falls.


Art genre: Sepia fine art architectural photograph

Complimentary decor: Traditional, modern

Photography tip: When working with light, try not to allow the light to overtake the composition.  Light is very powerful and it can "steal" the image.  Allow other values, such as darks and midtones to be equally represented.
