moments of light

Today has been a perfectly gloomy, cool day. I long for days like today, like most long for the sun and warmth. However, I am clearly addicted to light and shadows, as you all can tell from one of my current series. It is days like today that make me love the little moments of light even more though. And as winter slowly creeps up on us, and the light becomes a different kind of beautiful, I find myself being even more attentive to these moments.

moments of light

I haven’t shared images from my phone in quite some time, or from my camera even for that matter. Life has been a bit of a whirlwind lately. But I have been shooting, and have a plethora of images to share, including lots of my favorite subject. In fact, I have so many of light, that I am going to break it up into multiple posts. So, without further ado, I hope you enjoy these moments of light on this fine Wednesday night.

White Still Life

Another round of still life images for you all. These were shot the same day as the blue still life, as well as the second round of glass still life images. I have been loving the simplicity of these still lifes; they are quiet and rather understated, two things that I really appreciate these days.

Time for another dump of images from my phone of the light around me. These first images are from my apartment, work, and of course Scott’s house.

The other evening we were sitting on the couch together and all of a sudden he said, “you should shoot that.” Just ten minutes earlier I had photographed the light on the same wall, but looking up then I noticed it had completely changed since I last looked. We sat and watched it for a bit, partly while I was shooting, and partly just enjoying it. I am so glad my boyfriend is understanding of (and even appreciates) my love of light. We decided a time-lapse of that light would be amazing, so expect that soon as well. For now, here are the images of that evening playing out on one wall.

Moments of evening light

I finally downloaded the WordPress app for my phone, so I decided to do some posting of images I take with my phone on a more regular basis, starting tonight.

The light tonight was so lovely, and beautiful shadows were falling everywhere in and around Scott’s house. I don’t have my camera with me, but I ran around with my phone snapping away.

moments of light 2

As some of you may have read in my last “moments of light” post, lately I have been completely obsessed with documenting the light around me. As a photographer I have always been interested in light, but lately it has become the most important thing. I’m still not entirely sure why it is such a dominating factor for me (and my work) lately, but I don’t think it will fade at least any time soon.

Most of these moments get documented on instagram, since I always have my phone with me. If you want to follow along with this series the best way to do so would be to follow me on there.

And a little teaser of what I’ve been up to on instagram. You will notice that I’ve been focused on a few different things over the past few weeks.

Also, I will be home in Minnesota this weekend, so expect to see images of my precious nephew and other spring in MN related things soon!
