Photography Spotlight – “Chasing Light”

Code Canyon

The FIlm Photography Project is proud to present “Chasing Light”


Chasing Light is a fifteen minute documentary designed to demonstrate that photography in the modern age is not just about the use of mobile phones and compact cameras to create images It shows how traditional and alternate photographic processes are used, and manipulated by master’s of their craft to create the perfect art. Whilst the film does take a modest approach to showing traditional methods, newer forms of photography are also acknowledged – after all, cameras and lenses are just tools, and it should always be the final image that matters. The film features three UK based photographers: Leon Taylor, Valda Bailey and David Higgs. All three of whom are renowned within global photographic circles, for their unique styles, original creativity and photographic innovation. Chasing Light will hopefully inspire and with new knowledge to use for your own photography.

    imperfect tools hand ground by some bloke in the 1800s? you're using a mid 20th century military spec lens that costs like $700. 😛

    'chasing light'… sooooooo pretentious and overblown for what is 'liking to take photos with a good camera at night time'.

    Loved hearing Valda talk about the dead end road landscape photography seems to be in. If I see another long exposure of silky water I'm going to vomit.

    Wow…..this video was an unexpected pleasure.   Wonderful work by each craftsman/craftswoman.  I truly feel a sadness for those young digital photographers who have never explored film.  Film is the equivalent of reading the book of a movie.  The pace is more deliberate and more of the detail is uncovered.  *******I am not a digital hater.  Love digital too, however I am always more personally satisfied with my film work.  Maybe because all of my senses are truly involved in the film process.  Again, great video.  Thank you.
