A dreary night on watch at a Lighthouse in Maine

“We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won’t need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine.” – Dwight L. Moody

Taken on a somewhat slippery journey (really slippery!) over the rocks to photograph one of the most photographed lighthouse along the Maine coast. These kinda shots for me are ones that just scream out for a bit of your individual style and look as, like I said, these locations are captured all the time!

I haven’t played with textures in a while, but this one seemed like it needed a little something to bring it to life. Bright, blown out, and somewhat empty skys are always great candadates for this kind of treatment. Just toss it in as a layer and play with the blend modes. After that, I like to use a layer mask on the texture layer and “paint in” the look as desired. Maybe Ill do a quick video about how to do just that soon. Till then, have fun painting!
