When light is captured, everything becomes still. Whether it's a bird in song, the flight of a hawk, a feeding deer or a fading sunset......all that moves and changes is captured by the light of the moment.
Photography can be defined as- "Painting with light".
It's all about light. To capture an image is to capture light in a fraction of a second(give or take) available at that moment in time. The more light, the more color. As light is decreased, color decreases but mood increases. Take away too much light and color becomes desaturated to gray.
Photography is the only nondestructive outdoor activity, except possibly the act of birdwatching. Trophy photos are taken, wild things captured and life stopped still. Nothing is left behind and nothing is taken from the outdoors except the digital image.
These components are the makings of
Ralph Curtis Photography.
