What a difference soft light makes! Remember my post a few weeks back when I was lamenting how hard it is to photograph the details of lobstering when both the sun and the contrast are high? Well I had another chance to go out on a lobster boat and finally I had beautiful soft light to capture all that goes on when traps are being hauled.
Brenda and I have just returned from our latest trip to the Maine Coast and I think it was our best trip yet. I don’t think it was because the subjects were any better or prettier or the light was any better than our past trips. I think the reason is that we are better. We are better approaching people, being friendly and getting the best out of them. And we are better at going slowly now
