Light Steps

Filed under: Week Three — cabenelson @ 10:40 pm


In sticking with a “Halloween Theme” for the next few days I decided to go with this one. I took this one while I was roaming around a massive Catholic Church in Houston. I was at the end of this long hallway looking all the way down to the other side. I was shooting in Black and White 35mm and I just noticed the hallway lights looked like steps as your eyes scanned down the hall. I changed the Aperture on my old Nikon to only pick up the light sensitive areas. I adjusted the settings on the camera to absorb very little surrounding light, underexposing the photograph making it pitch black and to only bring out the bright areas of the picture. To be honest, it was a total shot in the dark! That’s the thing with 35mm; you never really know if you were successful or not with a shot until you actually develop the film. After I developed the negatives I was actually surprised with the outcome. If you take enough photos, you’re bound to have a good one.



  1. I like the light at the end of the hall. Something to walk towards.
