“crown of light ” light photograph by John Foster Dyess

My photograph “crown of Light ” was taken with my first digital camera, about twelve years ago. The camera was a Minolta Dimage S414 and was 4 mega pixels.
Taking photographs with a digital camera gave me the freedom to record images I would  not have taken, because of the cost of developing prints from film. This also changed the way I looked at the visual world around me. This was one of the first photos I took of a caustic light.  I saw this image on the living room floor and it came from the brass frame around a fireplace door. After recording this image I began to observe and record light. Not the way light falls on objects,which I have painted many times but light as an object.
I think of these photographs as light poetry.
I have also called this photograph “crown of thorns”.

My shadow photos were taken during the last eleven years and were taken inside two different homes that I have lived in. I enjoy looking at things to find art design and mystery.

I didn’t want to take a lot of time on todays blog post,so I choose an image created by JoDye. He has been absent for a while. This image is not as abstract as his usual images.
