Good Light or Good Form

Added on by John Sturr.

A colleague asked me when do I usually go out to shoot - "When ever I can", I said.  There are times when I plan a shoot - or have an idea of what kind of look I want.  Other times the moments are serendipitous.

As seen from my most of my work, it is probably not too difficult to see how I am attracted to very, strong, rectilinear forms.  And that is sometimes satisfied thru harsh light and shadow - and I'm really fine with that as the form is what I'm after.    The above image was shot with an Olympus Zuiko 35mm f2.8 Shift - converted with a Leitax Nikon adapter.

This last weekend I shot the Triad Center - and because that area is so vertical and channeled - overhead sun worked out well.  Else - the contrast between the shadow would be too difficult to balance.
