A fellow photographer once laughed and called me a "connoisseur of light." The laugh was for a photo of my kiddo's giggling face bathed in sunshine, with the toilet seat behind her head. I do love the way light can make the most mundane moment glorious. But there's more to a memorable photograph than that, and great light is not required. What's essential is authenticity. I look for those moments that show something real about a person or a relationship. A loving glance, a characteristic gesture, a flash of pure joy. Because in the end, do you want to remember what you looked like, or who you were?
