WRITING WITH LIGHT

PHOTOGRAPHY – writing with light – is a delightfully absorbing occupation – at least when it’s a hobby! Perhaps it’s a bit more frenetic when it really is your occupation. But I’m easily and frequently absorbed by picture-making precisely because, as better artists and photographers than me have frequently reminded us, light is forever changing. There’s always something new and glorious to be spellbound by. And with the help of a Canon EF100mm Macro lens I’m able to see flowers, for example, in the most extraordinary lights, and the detail in them, as though tenderly crafted and nurtured with the utmost care, imagination and precision, moves me, time and time again, to do worship.
