Desert Light. Geography has a profound impact on the eyes perception of daylight. Areas with large volumes of water (while necessary for life), causes variables that reflect, soften, and at worst completely obscure the essence of daylight. To limit those variables this photographer chooses the Mojave Desert in south-eastern California to maximize an entire day’s lighting aesthetics.
It’s a bit risky for the world’s top ski magazine to run a shot of skis travelling through the desert as the opener, but I’m glad they did…and it’s great to see a previsualized shot come to life just as you imagined it!
