Avoid making a commotion, just as you wouldn’t stir up the water before fishing. Don’t use a flash out of respect for the natural lighting, even when there isn’t any.
~ Henri Cartier-Bresson
Today’s Capture Your 365 prompt is “More than one.” The email that arrived in my inbox this morning describing the prompt mentions light, and how you should walk around your home at different times of the day, noticing how the light changes. There is not much natural light to be had today, and not much change in it from window to window to window. The best spot to find light today is in the basement as it comes in through the windows. The contrast between the darkness of the basement corners and the light coming in the windows made the light just enough.

(1) The more thoroughly a photographer explores his subject with the camera (i.e., the more pictures he makes), the more he sees and the better his chance of getting good results.
(2) Even slight changes in subject approach can make significant differences in the effect of the picture.

Bundle up. We’re going on an early morning walk and it’s cold. In the 20’s cold. Dress in layers and be sure to include a hat and warm gloves or mittens. I’m wearing my mitten-gloves with a pair of liner gloves underneath because I’ll be taking photos and experience has taught me to protect my fingers.

Look at your feet. You are standing in the sky. When we think of the sky, we tend to look up, but the sky actually begins at the earth.
