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.
Happy February 1, everyone! Where did January go?! It’s a new month, which means we’ve chosen a new theme for our All About Light P52. This month we will be sharing photos with neon lights. It’s amazing how many places we can find neon lights used if we just look around. One of the most obvious examples is restaurant signage. Here’s one from downtown Fullerton that I snapped while out one evening. We haven’t been to The Matador Cantina yet, but judging by the menu, I’m sure we’ll be checking it out soon! I love the scroll outline of the sign and how it reflects back into the window in front.
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. Don’t forget to head over to Beth’s page and check out an an awesome shot she snapped at a museum!: The Light Inside.
