Look for the Light


This is a great mantra that I picked up from the video of a TedX talk by Karen Walrond. I can really use this at work since I spend a significant part of my job talking to college students who are in a rough spot (unable to get into their first choice major, unsure of their major, on academic probation, and more). Everyone has a story, and I am trying harder to really listen.

The thing that I love about this talk is how Karen connects life and photography. I do not know much about photography, but I want to learn more. I really enjoy taking photographs, which I mainly do with my iPhone these days. I love how the light streams in to some of my pictures.


The second photo is from Alex's Easter egg hunt this morning. Whatever your beliefs, this is a good practice to follow.

Updated: Karen was kind enough to pair this quotation with one of her beautiful photos. You can check it out and download the PDF here. Thank you!

Great pictures. I've never played around with lighting like that, but I love the effect it has.

Thank you for the comments. I stared using this intense light in my photographs by a happy accident.
