Light is the name of the game in photography, and there are so many different ways to display it. One type of photograph that I enjoy making is with the central focus of just the light itself, rather than the subject. In this type of photo the subject simply becomes a tool in which to display the light. This is a type of photography that I want to work on more in the months ahead, so you might be seeing more images like this in the future.
I was out for a walk, during the harsh light of mid-day, with the goal of capturing a scene like the one above. When I saw the light hitting these reeds I knew that I needed to make an image, but not so much of the reeds themselves. My goal was to capture the light that was passing through the reeds, and since I was shooting in black and white, that has been highlighted nicely in today's image.
