Three Cedars in the Morning Light by Richard Lewis

Three Cedars in the Morning Light by Richard 2014

In my last post, I mentioned how we photographers can learn something from those that went before us who were shooting film. Working with film is a slower and more methodical process. By practicing a more patient and careful approach to our own photography, we can strive to come back from a photo shoot with one great photograph instead of a few good ones.

The other morning I decided to practice this at a favorite place in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. I wanted to make one photograph. Fortunately, it was one of those mornings with remarkable light.

How I Did It – Reading the Light. it is important to study the light in the area you live at all times of day. Doing that helps you get to know it and understand the variety of conditions that can cause it to change. Stare at the sky enough and you will be able to predict what is going to happen and be there when it does.


My family wishes a very Happy Thanksgiving for all of you who celebrate this day.
