the value of softness

a few months ago, I vowed to lighten up in a number of aspects of my life (body, mind and art). not surprisingly, my photos are showing the most dramatic results in this endeavor. not that this progress came without resistance. you see my friends, "big, bold and vibrant" are my thing. as well as "shoot what you like". which in my case is big, bold and vibrant.

I was challenged to see the value of soft light, the play of shadow and the subtle incandescence the two of them create during their dance. but I made a point of looking for it, seeking it out, capturing it, and eventually loving it.
