Taiwan photos: Find the light

Sometimes I just take pictures; I don’t stretch myself creatively. After a few years of shooting, it’s instinct to keep the horizon level, watch the rule of thirds, or to focus on balance. It’s generally easy to focus correctly or take a picture most people will find visually appealing. My pictures aren’t the best, but they’re above average.

When Sabrina and I left for Taiwan, I decided that my goal with my photos on the trip was to find the light. I’ve been fascinated recently by paintings and photography that really captures the light in a beautiful way. A piece that glows, like Ivan Aivazovsky’s The Ninth Wave, just captures me.

So I tried to capture the light. I didn’t necessarily succeed with all these shots, but I’m a fan of how they turned out, and these are some of my favorite pictures from the trip. All are straight out of the camera.

  1. You so capture atmosphere, Mandy. I am so longing to sit at that window, to smile at that little girl, to stroll through that garden. Thank you for sharing your love. This goes far beyond average.
