As any photographer will concede, the impression of an image is heavily dependant on the quality and quantity of light present. I enjoy "natural light" illumination first and foremost. As with any art though, many other factors come into play in the creation of a print. My main focus is the composition, and the significance of the image. Although composition is well understood in the arts, significance is entirely dependant upon the one viewing the image. I have found that the more universally appealing the subject(s), the more reaction can be felt. Although a complicated image can be visually stimulating, simplicity is often the most profound.
The absence of colour, portrays the subject solely in its form and texture. The more apparent these are, the better. This also further enhances the simplification I value.
