Evening Light

 Understanding light is a critical element of photography. Admittedly, learning the ins and outs of light has NOT been easy for me; in fact, it has taken me years and years and years of trial and error and practice and study to finally grasp the bulk of it. I feel like I really turned a corner in regards to light in the past half year or so, and this has opened up a new world for me, photographically speaking.  I shot these photos back in April at  around 7:00 in the evening after a soccer practice, while walking from the field to the parking lot. Lauren had had her eye on this spot for several days because there was a turtle living there and each time we walked past, she checked to see if he was home/awake/showing himself. It’s difficult to put into words, but I just know that a year ago, I wouldn’t have had this success at the time of day these were taken. I think I like the learning part of photography as much as I enjoy the photo taking part of photography; luckily, I feel like I will never run out of things to learn and experiment with.
