Searching for the light
Searching for the light

When darkness meets light

Right there, at the border of dark. There, in the ever changing weather. When rain drops are pushed away by wind, when strays of sunlight work its way trew clouds or snowflakes. Thats where you will find it, the magic of photography.

As long as there is light, there are things to play with. I honestly think its hard to be fasinated by photography without the interest of light. Light in any form and color. I dont know what came first. But I think this has grown on me. First the wish to take good pictures, then the fasination of details in light. All though I find almost any lightform interesting, I do feel an extra spark in the twilight.

For this simple reason, there is only one way to get to it. Beeing as much outdoors as possible. And when your out, and think its time to go home. Thats when it may be a good choice to hang around and wait it out.

Check out my my shot of Bruno Compagne in the story written by Eivind Eidslott “Lofoten – A love story” The image was captured on a day just like the day in the image below. Full white out, and now hope for clearing. Almost missed out, but was saved by Bruno`s lust for powderskiing.

Windy day in Myrkdalen. Not the best weather for skiing but it makes a nice scene for photography.
