Random Light. Without it, we have radio.
Sometimes we don’t see what we are looking at. Just going about the day, simple things in our view go un-cataloged within our minds-eye. It’s just there and we take it for granted. Walk by the same thing day-in-day-out. But when you stop a second and snap an image, that daily view takes on a whole new meaning.
The inventor of the Polaroid Land camera once said “the moment you look through a camera viewfinder, you never see the world the same again.” Some even advance to the point where the ‘see’ the light, not just what’s in front of the camera.
I try and teach my cinematography students to stop and “see the roses.” When it works, the world becomes a new place to visually visit.
