As photographers, we are drawn to light. Even in darkness, our eyes can't help but to wander a room looking for hidden treasures illuminated by the glow of a candle or reflected by the moon. However, in many cases, our eyes see something that our cameras aren't always able to capture. I find that texture allows me to fully illustrate the image of my mind's eye.
A couple of months ago, I was asked to photograph a wedding reception for a friend. The reception was held at a neighborhood bar with 75 of their closest friends and family. I'm not much of a drinker, so it's been a while since I've spent much time in a bar. However, I was struck by the unexpected beauty of the bottles on the shelves and the traces of candlelight.
Photoangie's photo embraced that same unexpected beauty in these Guinness bottles. I love the way the sunlight pours over the glass. The texture adds to the tone of the image without being distracting.
Until next time,
