New and Improved

Henri Cartier-Bresson, the godfather of Street photography once said

Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst

So, on this new and improved incarnation of the Shadow or Light website, I’ll be taking that into account. He went on to say

It’s an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, the heart and the head

That’s the wisdom that those first thousands gradually reveal – photography is vision and emotion overlaid on competent technical capability and good graphic design.

But don’t let that put you off. Henri also said

Of course, it’s all just luck!

You can see some of his own legendary pictures at Magnum Photos.
