I know this experience all too well. I love how Noe Todorovich captured this familiar scene for photographers—the lighting is beautiful. The more I look at the empty chair illuminated by the forever-awake computer screen, I am reminded that even though I may not be sitting in the chair physically working on projects, I am constantly working on them in my mind, all day and all night. It’s a photographer’s dilemma—work on your passion, or sleep.
The light and shadows in this self-portrait by Noe Todorovich are what make the image. Yes, it’s a nice portrait, but placing herself in such a graphic scene and using the natural geometry the window blinds create from the light shows great creativity and photographic foresight.
Photographer Yonas Hassen found this interesting interplay of light and shadow on the bus. From left to right the light is in a square, a triangle and then another square. If you read the words casting a shadow carefully it reads, “Adams Morgan Golden Triangle.” Another great example to show that it’s always good to have your camera ready.
