Photo 52: Project Light | playing with natural light indoors (week 1)

January 06, 2013  •  5 Comments


A room without books is like a body without a soul. 
It's a new month which means a new topic for Photo 52: Project Light. It's pretty chilly outside and anyone who knows me knows I am NOT a fan of the cold! We are spending most of our time indoors these days which makes it a perfect time to explore using natural window light for our images. 
What I love best about this year long light project is that it makes me look at my everyday surroundings in brand new ways. I was pleasantly surprised to see the textural effect of the late morning sun on our little library this week. It's always been there, but it's like I just saw it for the first time.


Photo 52: Project Light is a collaborative project I am working on with several other talented photographers. To see all of our submissions for this week just follow the links at the bottom of each blog post. (For more information on Project Light click on my premier post.)

Next check out the beautiful photography of New Yorker/ beach-traveler Jessie Wixon. Then continue along the circle to see all of our plays on natural light this week.



I love the texture of the light on this one. It's playful and unexpected. And there is a wisdom about your daughter in this photo that makes me want to eat her up!
Beautiful! I love that you have the diagonal lines of light on the books, yet the diffuse directional light on Joli's face.
So dramatic! I love it.
It is fun to see light in all kinds of new ways around our homes isn't it! I love her serious expression and the texture of the books behind her with that dramatic light. Lovely!
The diagonals create a strong sense of movement in this image but I keep coming back to her eyes. Nice work!
