Photographing lines, frames, shadows and light reflections are a favorite for us and we are never without many opportunities when traveling for architectural, industrial and city shoots. These subjects are always in our thinking when we travel to ocean and mountain destinations as well. The “one-half mile long bridge” (Fort Cinch Pier) from land to ocean is one of those great spots to capture the varying lines and shadows that frame the scene before you as you walk out and return. One must not get lost in the capture of them to forget the beauty of light, colors and scene before them. Our motto: Study the scene but also capture the lines, frames and shadows.
“Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love – that makes life and nature harmonise. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one’s very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”
― George Eliot
It’s that time again!!!! We are revisiting our posts of Christmas past as we prepare the new images for this year. It is surely a beautiful time of the year of festive lights and joy!
It’s Christmastime and that is exciting for us as photographers as we tour resorts, wineries, Christmas light shows and more to capture the beauty of the season. On theJayJacy Photography blog we are featuring 25 Days of Beautiful Christmas Trees as it is, of course, one of our favorite subjects of Christmas photography and every year at every place we are dazzled by the artistic creations of the designers. This is a favorite from “The Greenbrier Resort” photoshoot. The colors and lighting were magnificent.
