I found this old window on Main Street here on Tortola. I have never been inside the store, and I actually wonder if it is still even open. I have always noticed the trinkets in the little window and the old hook used to latch the window shut. I love little finds like this.

Sometimes the light hits an object in a different way that makes to look at it in a way you had not before. I see palm leaves everywhere on the island but the light hit this one just right and in such a way that it made me take immediate notice.

Black and white abstract image of a man standing in shallow water on a beach in the Caribbean. Though the man was an interesting subject, I found his shadow and the lines and textures of the water to be more interesting.

Change your perspective and lighting and it can change your image drastically

The challenge that resulted in this image was “Geometry”. I love geometry in photography so I was excited to go out and find something. It was an overcast day when I came across an old television set with the most fantastic patterns on the bottom. I took a few shots, quite pleased with my results. On processing the image (image 2) I felt as though the image was lacking something and so I decided to take another go at the same subject but on a sunnier day.
The next day the sun was out a bit brighter so I dragged the television out from the shadow of the building and into the direct light. I changed my angle of approach and shot away. These changes resulted in what you see in image 1. There was a completely different feel. The shadows added interest to the image and in fact I think enhanced the geometric element of the image.
With that said, I encourage everyone to go out and experiment with your subjects. Change the lighting, change the angle, and you might be surprised with the difference in image you will get.
