This blog is intended to showcase my pictures or those of other photographers who have moved beyond the pretty picture and for whom photography is more than entertainment - photography that aims at being true, not at being beautiful because what is true is most often beautiful..

sunny Sunday ~ Au Sable Forks, NY - in the Adirondack PARK • click to embiggen

Sometimes you have to step out of the box in order to say what you want to say.

In the case of today's entry picture, the box I have stepped out of is that of my normal M.O. of processing my pictures to be full-range - no blown highlights / no blocked up shadows) - pictures. With the sunny Sunday picture I deliberately made and processed the file with the intention of lettings the highlight area be blown out / feature-less in order to represent the sensation of entering the porch space and having to squint while my eyes adjusted to the very bright light streaming in the porch doors.

This picturing M.O. is something I have been contemplating undertaking as a project, perhaps under the title of bright light(s). Still not sure if I want to venture off into the picture making land of feelings and sensations (as opposed to straight picture making).

BTW, it's appropriate that I post a picture of flowers inasmuch as I am judging a flower photo competition later today.

The "blown highlights" certainly work effectively for me. I can feel the warm sunlight even though the computer screen.
