Most of us enjoy being bathed in full sun and surrounded by nature and I’m no exception. No matter where I am in the World, I find myself constantly on the look out for interesting architectural plants to photograph. I spend hours searching with my camera for something unique.

For it’s striking high contrast effect and simplicity, I tend to photograph plants with a singular direct light source, predominantly the Sun. I’ll revisit the chosen subject time and time again until I feel that the direction of light is just right and I’m satisfied with the composition. Personally, I believe that it’s not so much about where you place the light, but more importantly it’s where you place the shadows.
