Consuminglouisville.com just did a ticket give away for the Louisville Orchestra's ROARchestra concert this weekend. The winner, Daniel Light, is a piano teacher and a very good photographer. Check out his site, Etudes.
I am very impressed with his Louisville photos, they are romantic and fun. Like this one of the Twig at night. Shooting at night is hard, but he gets so much color in the sky... I wonder if he uses filters. Some of his work on Fliker is in black and white with one added color, so I guess he does digital editing. If you look at this picture larger, the restaurant is fairly empty. You can make out maybe two figures. It has that lonely feeling of Night Hawks, with the colors beaming through the dark sky.
étude, a brief musical composition, usually for piano, fashioned to instruct an instrumentalist in a particular technical problem, such as scales or trills. Succeeding the toccata, popular in the baroque period, the étude was developed into a compactly crafted musical form by Frédéric Chopin and Franz Liszt.
