Reflected Light

Reflected Light


my name is: E. Coventry Patmore

i'm sharing: The attached photo was taken in a moment of deep shade at the Getty Center, an image displaying some of the surprising colors the camera sees in reflected light.

this was inspired by: Afternoons at the Getty Center are often bathed in high contrast light, so I have been trying to combat this in various ways in my photography, one of which is to look for subjects in shady places. This has opened up an exciting new aspect of my work, because I've discovered that my camera is capable of seeing the most amazing and beautiful colors where I can only see shadows, especially when the surface material of the subject is metallic.

to me, inspiration is: the way in which my creativity is stirred by the unexpected.
