In the best possible light

Posted on Thu, 14 Feb 2008 by midcenturyjo

Scott Dorrance is a photographer captivated by light. It means everything in a photo to him. I think he explains it best on his website. “Light, to my eye, is the essence of life. It dictates the mood of an image. It summons emotion. It lends action. It defines calm. It’s constantly changing.” I feel that I have just stepped into the rooms he has captured on film. Their presence is palpable.

It’s not just his interior spaces that are lovely. His work entitled small spaces showcases his mastery of light and shade. Inanimate objects are jewel like in his lens. Flowers dance in the light. Go read his profile. I like the guy not just his photos.

He DOES seem like a really nice guy 🙂

And he has a way of making small spaces just seem so pretty and comfortable. That tiny kitchen is actually appealing to me. Because of how he photographed it!

These are really great photos – I’m loving the fourth. What a fabulous window covering/screen!

Great post. I’m really struggling with the quality of my photography right now. Maybe this is it. Light but of course!

simply beautiful. purple and royal blue together are just stunning.
