When That Shutter Clicks

Edward Steichen believed that the force behind every photograph was the lighting, and I totally agree.The effect of light on a photograph is something that is so remarkable, light makes a photograph what it is, it highlights the beauty of the object being photographed.He was a phenomenal pictorialist in the early stages of his career, his photographs appeared like Portraits that were painted with soft refined colours. He also used the autochrome effect to add colour to photographs.His photographs had life, they were pure and they had soul, its amazing how years and years after the 20th century these photographs are still breathtaking. It’s easy to see why many photographs today can not be tagged as “classic” because they have been corrupted by technology the same way so many other things have been corrupted but that is another story for another day.
