Sometimes it’s all about the light and the moment. When the light is good, almost everything seems to have a glow. The textures take on an even more tactile quality than expected. Shoot then, edit later.
The light coming in from the side window, diffused by blinds brings out the subtle variations in all surfaces. The morning was cool. The room where we were staying (at Rob and Diane’s) was cold. I didn’t need a better excuse to stay in and linger longer. But the light was so good.
The diffuse light rakes across the ceiling and wraps around the chandelier making each curve seem distinct and thoughtful. The mirror only answers with another agreement of tone and texture.
The glass window in the central shaft breaks the light out into thoughts for the day.
These interior elements, that Diane and Rob have selected, diffuse, reflect, and catch the light in ways both pleasing to the eye and the camera.
Look and look again, deeper, quieter.
