Kokoro - Wandering Through a Photographic Life

Backstage Kokoro

A "behind-the-scenes" look at selected images in my Kokoro project —
Content, photographic notes, EXIF data, creative process, miscellaneous commentary, and original digital captures. And now with additional audio comments about selected images!

From Kokoro #083 - Where Are You, Laozi?

I often chuckle when I hear supposedly experienced photographers talk about the virtues of the "golden hour" light and deride mid-day light as useless. Well, except for images like this one where the best and only light occurs mid-day. I am convinced there is no "good" light and "bad" light — there is just light. It's what we do with it that is either good or bad.
