Today was spent running from location to location taking photographs of families and couples. One of the best things about the Bay Area is the weather constantly surprises you. So the light I had this morning in Palo Alto was drastically different than the light I encountered this afternoon in Woodside. And both scenarios were a far cry from the overcast clouds and wind I encountered at Fort Point.
But the best part was all the light was amazing. As photographers our job is to understand light to a point where it becomes second nature to place a subject. I don't shoot photos unless I like the light. There are times when we have to break this rule for the sake of getting an image and the results are typically less than spectacular. I do enjoy the fact that I see the world in terms of how things are lit.
Sorry for the rant but I wanted to share something from today and light was it!
