All About Light: Week 10

04 Jan

All About Light is a weekly photography project by two friends who met virtually while working on their respective Project 365s in 2013-2014. We quickly realized that we enjoyed each other’s photos and always looked forward to seeing what the other one shared. Since we both have a love for the genre of street photography, we found ourselves capturing intriguing signage in unexpected places and laughed about who might get the next best shot of a crazy sign. After finishing our Project 365, we decided to take on a weekly project to study the use of light and learn about ways to improve our photography by focusing on different light sources. Each month we will focus on a different source of light in our photos. We hope you enjoy what we capture as we learn all about light.

It’s a new month, and that means a new theme. We’re really excited about this one! Beth and I will be working in black and white this month. We each really love B&W photography, so it should be an extra fun one. I snapped this image in my hometown of Hattiesburg, MS while at home for the holidays. Hattiesburg is also known as the Hub City, because it is situated in the middle of several major (and some not as major, but still important) cities in the southeast: Gulfport, Jackson, Meridian, Mobile, Natchez and New Orleans. The city of Hattiesburg was also an important central location for the lumber and railroad industries and was the intersecting point for many rail lines. It’s where I call home and whenever I visit, I always notice small things that have changed, as well as those things that have stayed the same after so many years.

Beth of Beth Moses Photography and I became friends in 2013, while sharing our photos in a large group of Project 365ers online. As the year went on, we realized how much we had in common and even had a friendly competition of shooting odd signage and tagging the other one with “Your turn!”. Besides our shared interest in photographing everyday moments, we also share a passion for coffee and the south. I’m so glad I get to continue to share my thoughts on photography with Beth, and now, this project, too. Now, head over to Beth’s page and see her first B&W shot for the month: Whisk.
