    Photography is "painting with light"..

    That has stuck in my mind and I have given this some great thought.

    I scanned my mind for the movies that I loved, especially the photography aspects.

    Then came a revelation of sorts... I have been chasing light.. the golden hour, lenses that gather the most light, ISO capabilities in "low light".. reflections, shadows, contrast, etc.

    I watched a movie called "K-PAX" and here's a synopsis:

    But more importantly, look at the use of lighting and shadows in filming this movie!

    Now go and paint with light.
