Light. Glorious, Beautiful, Warehouse light. (Part IV)
Here we are, at the last part of this experience.
I've saved writing about my favorite bit of this experience until now, so thanks for sticking with me through it all.
Let's talk about light, shall we? Light is glorious. It is wondrous. It is ever-present, and as a photographer, I find myself always examining the light where I am and thinking about it. Even while I'm eating at a restaurant, I'll look at a dish, look at the light, and think about how I would try to make it look if I were creating an image.
Well, I did the same thing in the warehouse. When I first started on that cold Tuesday night, I was interested in everything and just tried to get in my mind where things were, what things looked like, and how I might make my pictures.
As the night wore on, I began to be entranced by how the light played on all of this produce. Stacks of tomatoes with light being naturally blocked by shelves above, lit directionally from a single side, or bags of onions loaded onto a truck, highlighted by where a light shines in to help the workers see where they are putting their loads.
I spent much of my time enjoying and photographing how the warehouse light made its way through cracks, crevices, shelves, and boxes to delightfully illuminate various pieces of fruit and vegetables that patiently awaited their turn to depart their temporary storage. So, with that, I'm going to leave you to the images.
tl;dr: Light is amazing, I'm always looking at it, and even in a warehouse it can work wonders.
Thanks again for sticking with me through all this. I'm going to go ahead and offer a print to some lucky reader. If you want to be entered into this drawing, please leave a comment below about what you found most interesting or what you enjoyed most from all of these posts I've done. No sharing required, but I would certainly appreciate if you would! Contest ends this Friday, so don't delay!
