Black light was a term I first came across when reading about the photographer John Claridge?who printed his photographs very dark to emphasise the light falling on the subject in them. Today at Caswell it was a black light day. The wind was up producing great waves, but the clouds were low in the sky giving a dark grey feel to the evening. A straight record of this scene would be very dull, but by darkening everything down and altering the contrast, the image transforms. The mood of this?photograph is a million miles from?a straight record. Thinking about it, it would have been a good day to take portrait photographs with a really shallow depth of field.
