Why Vermeer? Its all about Light

June 10, 2011  •  Leave a Comment
The light was low and sparse along the France's Biarritz shoreline. It  is a windy place being off the Bay of Biscayne so I used the fencing to give a sense of the wind and found a dash of pink for interest.  Vermeer was all about  careful, planned composition and the use of light to create the story and impact. The best in landscape photographers involve these elements.  Similarly, I planned to rise early to get this one of Courtice road.






But then the light catches you by surprise.   After an hour of nothing,  taking the camera off its tripod and packing up the gear you turn around and you see this... no time for careful adjustments and composition - the light creates the image for you. Snap.
