Impressionism and Light
Impressionist painters were preoccupied with light.
Monet’s series paintings can really be seen as a logical extension to the Impressionist principle of painting the light and capturing a fleeting moment in time.
Here is a result of my own series of photographs. For a whole year I was photographing and seeing one place in different light and weather conditions, in every season and different time of day.

Look at any object you like and ask yourself in exactly what light you are seeing it. Would its essence, its expression, its form, its colour or its meaning change if the lighting were to change? What shadows are created by the light that it falling on the subject, and where exactly can you see them? Create several images. Experiment and have fun.
