A pretty chandelier caught my eye while out shopping with my family. It was perfect for the master bedroom – glittery glass pendants and shiny, embossed brass.
The circular patterns caught my eye first; the shadows cast across my ceiling, second.
A simple addition (a sale item, too!) quickly became an unexpected inspiration to capture with my camera: light as art.
While looking for flashlights (in case of a power outage during yet another spring blizzard), I came across some items I had used in photography lessons about light.
Along with a variety of small flashlights, I found some forgotten dollar store candle holders and glass vases.
So I started playing with the reflections by moving things around, and grabbed my camera for a few shots. A slight movement of light made dramatic changes, and I managed a few abstract compositions before gathering the flashlights for the night.
This one is my favourite.
