Natural Light is So Beautiful!

I’m interested in learning about how to manipulate light as a photographer – both natural and artificial.

But I have to admit: there’s nothing more exciting to me, photographically-speaking, than those moments when I have my camera in my hand and the natural light is just right. Natural light, for me, is where the magic is.

I got lucky with one today:

A leaf in the grass on the way home from my daughter's bus stop. Beautiful!

I don’t want to limit myself artistically to natural light photography. But I really want more shots like this one!

Right now, there’s a huge degree of chance involved in these sorts of images. Too much!

I’d like to become adept enough a photographer that I can go out purposefully, camera in hand, and know that I’ll come home with shots like this.

I’m not there yet. (But I’m grateful when chance favors me!)
