Miami, FL, USA – We used to seeing sandcastles during the day but rarely at night. On a walk along South Miami beach one night we came across what from the distance looked like a small fire. When we approached we saw this sandcastle dramatically lit by small candles embedded in the sand. Captured with a Kodak 6490 using a 28mm lens.
Massasauga Provincial Park, ON, Canada – After a day of portaging we settled in on a rocky outcrop. The paddles almost feel as if they glow as their shiny coats reflect the light of the nearby campfire. The image illustrates well the sense of isolation and solitude achieved through such remote excursions. Captured with a Canon 20D using a 17-40mm lens.
Oakville, ON, Canada – If the camera is the canvas and light is colour then fire is my favourite brush. Unlike man-made lights, fire is never the same, it’s always changing and never still. This match’s wavering flame paints motion onto an otherwise static frame in the shape of my first initial. Captured with a Canon 20D using a 17-40mm lens.
Oakville, ON, Canada – Photography is the art of drawing with light. We too often forget that the camera does not need to be still for that to remain true. While out tonight I noticed so many different coloured lights on my street from the holidays. I decided to try and capture them all in 30 seconds. This image is the result of the camera bobbing during a large 360 sweep. Captured with a Canon 5D Mark III using an 18-55mm lens.
