The light is the key…

For my sins I watch a lot of photography related vlogs on YouTube.   Some are really useful and most are mildly entertaining.   Perhaps the most interesting thing about their output is the divide between the young and old:   The younger vloggers are all about kit and equipment and noise and fury where as the older vloggers tend to have a more considered opinion on photographic kit and photography in general.  I guess this is art imitating life.

However, what is not mentioned enough in all of these vlogs is light – the one ingredient that most photographs need.   This morning I was able to explore the suitable effect that diffused light has on  my local park and it changed it into a menacing place – not least because the river was in full flow having burst its bank yesterday.   It was wonderful if a little cold.
