At this time in my life I am fortunate in many ways. I am doing work that I dreamed up, making it real and actually selling some of it. That long time goal — to bring something from the fecund “nothing” — is being met, a little or a lot everyday. I am making it up as I go along, teaching myself, working with ideas and requests from DarcyArts fans.
Everything is an experiment and I’m constantly learning.I like to make things and I like to take photographs. I’m so glad the digital format came along.
These photos are from an early morning photo shoot. The light was low. I saw this squiggly bar of light on a thin shaft of the multi-colored, sheer curtains in the living room. This room is the darkest in the house. I set the ISO to 800 and hoped I could hold the camera steady enough to get a decent shot.
The darkness helps. You cannot tell it’s a curtain.
With the 800ISO it is easier to see the wall and maybe decipher that you are looking at a window treatment.
I have a tripod that I should use.
I’ve always wanted to take night photos, discover strange effects.
The room did not have this much light in it, not to the naked eye.
I love formal education but I like discovering things for myself.
