I confess to having no formal training in photography, and in that respect I am not confined by the rules of photography. Therefore, my approach is somewhat improvisational relying on feel rather than technical expertise. I like to paraphrase Don McCullin, “unless I feel it, how do I expect others to feel it!” I am increasingly finding that the quality of light in an image is equally as important as the subject matter itself.
