The Porch with Shadows

Every project has to start somewhere. Sometimes it takes a while to get things going, but there has to be a first photograph. This project started outside because that’s just what you have to do to enter a building. You have to walk up to the building, take your camera out of the bag and figure out where to start. These are simple photographs because I haven’t begun to see what this project would actually become. Photographs are a dance among the photographer, the subject of the photograph and the source of light. The building is not going to move, the sun will move in the sky and you, as the photographer, will have to wait for the right “moment” and then move to make sure that you are in the best position to make the light and shadows make the image in your mind’s eye.
