Lux Sit

By Katherine Turner

Mad props to Eric for experimenting with light. There are a lot of other nice things going on here: exposure, composition, etc. but the well-executed firework effect ‘steels’ the show.

It’s also great to see light as the subject of the image. That’s all photography is, really… the art of capturing light.

“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.” – George Eastman
