I like photographing in Southern California. In winter, the morning and evening sunlight takes center stage: warm, friendly, and welcoming. What's harsh and ordinary at mid-day, becomes alluring when wrapped in the romantic light of early morning or late afternoon. Landscapes are more powerful, shadows more mysterious. Early Hollywood filmmakers came for Southern California's diverse terrain and accommodating weather. Like me, they probably also loved the light.
