In this installment of my 2012 year in photos I am taking a look back at the images I was able to capture using available light in a creative way. Every year I cover around a thousand assignments of all sorts for the Morning Sun. I know that out of all of these photographic possibilities the opportunity will be there for a dozen or so assignments with challenging light, and this year was no different. I love making images at night with just a little bit of light, as well as silhouettes and I really enjoy the challenge of trying to get the exposure just right in tough unique situations. Plus, I just can’t help it. I am drawn to these scenes, I always have been and as long as I have the opportunity to be a photojournalist I will continue to look for these situations to illustrate a story in a different way and add to my growing portfolio of these images. Here are my favorites from 2012. I do realize that the New Year's Eve photos were taken in 2011, but they were also the first of my photos published in 2012, so I added them.
