This blog is a personal project that came out of seeing a challenge from wordpress to do a photo-a-day in November. I’ve wanted to get more disciplined about shooting again, and this seemed like a good way to get on track. It’s also challenged me to write more, which is probably harder for me than the photography.
In my real job, I’m the Creative Director at Miller Designworks, a multimedia design firm located in Phoenixville (a suburb west of Philadelphia PA). We are right near Valley Forge, so that’s the shot I took for the home page of the blog.
The blog name- ambient dark- isn’t meant to be all spooky or nihilistic, rather it’s meant to reflect that it’s often the darkness, the shadows, that really make the photo special. Much like it’s often the reality that in the dark times- “the frowning providences” as the Puritans might put it- that we really see the light.
Hope you enjoy them.
