Light of Hope

Posted by Ziren (Singapore, Singapore) on 22 June 2010 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

I usually face problems while shooting under dark conditions - where I have to set the exposure such that the picture can be clear handheld (I don't use tripods!). Sometimes, I have to set the shutter speed to as high as possible to highlight a bright thing in the dark (like in this picture). That problem was not observed in the process of taking this picture, though.

*negative space has worked to my advantage in this picture, I guess.

I am Ziren Wang, a student from Raffles Institution, Singapore. I seek to contribute to the very community that introduced me to photography - my school. I frequently and delightfully use my photography skills to serve my school and my community, as a member of the photographic society.

A Ming vase can be well-designed and well-made and is beautiful for that reason alone. I don't think this can be true for photography. Unless there is something a little incomplete and a little strange, it will simply look like a copy of something pretty. We won't take an interest in it. (John Loengard, "Pictures Under Discussion")

To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt. (Susan Sontag, "On Photography")
