Blog Guelph: Morning Light

Good morning BG! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I have selected three beautiful images from Krista Kruger and if you haven't already done so, take a look through her stream and check out her blog. There is a lot that admire about Krista's photography; her subtle but confident use of soft, super soft, focus, her sense of her own vision, and her openness about her images. With focus, Krista will isolate these amazing scenes, defined by shape and negative space, creating in an image that which seems to be seen just as the eye blinks. Her vision is clearly her own and if you take the time to go through her stream from past to now you can really appreciate the evolution of her work through various influences. I am not particularly forthcoming about the how or the where or the why of much of my work because I think the process is private while the image is public. Krista, however, shares not the technical protocol of lenses and fstops, but rather the emotional lead up of waking up at 430, or spending the evening at the ball diamond, and maybe it is the emotional context that contributes to the accessibility of her work. Regardless, Krista, thank you for sharing so much of yourself and your work.

Hope you all enjoy the day,


Morning Light
