Risen Light Nature Photography of Wildlife & Bugs
Risen Light Nature Photography of Wildlife &
Over the years I have held a certain vision for the look and feel of my photography. I want it to have a soft warm look, balanced with a contrast of highlights and shadows. The soft warm light I am looking for can be seen very early in the morning as the sun is just beginning to rise. To accomplish this, I stay away from artificial flash and use natural light. Many of my pictures are not what you would see in nature and wildlife magazines. This is because they are just a little on the artistic side and slightly away from the technical, brightly lit photography that you see in some magazines and reference books. The best way to accomplish this warm look is to shoot just as the morning sun is breaking over the horizon. There is a very small window of morning light that gives everything that soft warm look and feel. This can make it very difficult to photograph wildlife. It took me several months to get pictures of wood ducks because they kept arriving to the pond after that small window of time. But eventually my patience paid off and I got the shot. That is one of the reasons our books are titled "Risen Light." The other reason for the title is that through my photography, Donna's writing, and our lives, we give honor, praise, and glory to Jesus, the true Risen Light. The photog...
