The key to photography

my favorite 

I happened to walk by our dresser the other morning and noticed a nice light shining through my favorite perfume. Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel. I turned the bottle so I could see the label and took this shot. The next day I read this great quote on line via twitter:

“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.”      George Eastman

I knew photography is called “painting with light,” and that light is really important, but this made me look at photography differently. The words are in the back of my mind when I frame every shot now.

Sometimes I love the Internet….
