On a Thursday evening, I came home from the gym to find this view from my apartment. The light washed over downtown Toronto just right, bouncing off apartment windows, catching the red tones in the street lights. I saw a beautiful image in the view and snapped a few shots quickly. A few minutes later, the light was gone.
Good images is good light. Learning to recognize, create, capture, and wait for good light is the basic making of a photographer.
