A few years back I spent some time in Cape Cod with my family. As we wandered down to the beach late at night I felt intrigued to capture our movements near the crashing waves. The moon was large and bright casting a shadows along the sky.
With our spot light to guide us, I watched from afar and snapped a few photos of motion. What the photos turned into reminded me of a painting done in chiaroscuro. Caravaggio being one of my favorite painters I felt inspired to attempt this style of photographing again.
Naturally, I then turned to shooting fireworks. I spent a weekend in a cabin in upstate New York with friends and shot photos while watching the sparkles of roman candles and fountain fireworks. As I placed my camera on a tree stump I was able to capture the slight brightness glowing around my friends and their dog.
While at a campground built in the 1800's in early October I was taken back by the stunning details in the structure of the buildings. Every one of the cabins were build from carved pieces of wood and slight metal detailing. At night because of the darkness in the forest if the lights were on inside it created this beautiful yellow/orange glow.
