Working on images of Charleston’s spring bloom has been a great way to warm me on the chilly winter mornings.

Evening’s Stillness – Charleston, SC

When talking with clients at the art fairs I am asked what time of day do I usually capture my images. Early mornings and evening’s are usually the best shooting conditions which surprised most people.

Ambient light is softer at sunrise and sunset and gives me a more consistent exposure through the whole image than images shot when the sun is higher. There is usually stillness in the airs movement and everything stops moving. The leaves and flowers stop fluttering and Lakes Rivers and ponds can become mirrors. This is my favorite time of each day and when I usually capture my best images.

This mirrored lake in Charleston is perfectly still at sunset and gave me this beautiful mirror image. It was a great way to start the Charleston workshop this year.
