Photography is the ability to capture light on film or in a digital file in a manner that satisfies the vision of the photographer. Light is the essence of photography and also represents the greatest challenge for photographers to master the mood, focus and style of the artist’s paintbrush. Location and lighting offer the photographer infinite possibilities for personal expression in their photographs. Your mind visualizes an image and your photographic talent and skill enables you to bring it to fruition.
