Happy Valentine’s Day!
What better way to celebrate the one day of the year we set aside to celebrate love – the greatest human emotion of all – than with some thoroughly romantic wedding images. Prince Edward County always surprises us with it’s unique ecosystem. At sunset, there appear these beautiful deep dark grey blue skies to the east, and in the west the sunset glows a warm soft golden yellow. These are the perfect conditions for creating striking photographs, that refuse any other adjective but romantic. Brooding and Bright, so lovely!
In fact there is a Fine Art term for these exact conditions. It is called, “chiaroscuro.” This term is pronounced, Key-are-as-cure-o. Don’t worry I can never pronounce it right either. Basically the terms is Italian for light and dark, or contrast.
This technique was developed and popularized by the painters Leonardo DaVinci, Johannes Vermeer, Titian, Caravaggio, and Rembrandt. Good company to be in huh!? (laughs)
There is something about the mixture of light and dark, in a rural setting that always reminds me of a Brontë novel. Particularly Emily Brontë’s “Wuthering Heights.” I’ll leave you with this beautifully romantic quote that has always meant something special to Melissa and I from the novel:
“He is more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” – Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights
