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.
Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, and several holidays ago, we stopped giving big gifts and started planning experiences to enjoy together instead. We spent the entire day together, hanging out and checking out new places. We finished it off with a movie that my husband had been wanting to see for a while. When we left, there was a light and water show going on in the fountain outside the cinema. I knew this had to be my neon light shot for this week. I love how they timed the water to shoot into the air in rhythm with the music, and the added red lights made it that much more fun to watch. Hope your Valentine’s Day was enjoyable, too!
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, go check out Beth’s photo this week! She captured a great street shot in one of my favorite cities: NYPD.
