Photographing Lake Michigan

Every so often someone will send me a photo where I’m photographing Lake Michigan and I’ll be at the center of it, completely oblivious and unaware, my entire attention focused on photographing the lake for the Lake Series. This time however, it was taken courtesy of Clare, someone I happen to know quite well! These mornings on the lake have that perfect diffuse lighting that enables really subtle photographs to emerge.
