The good thing about exposure is that you finally get to the heart of things. Truth. Sometimes ugly, sometimes just unexpected, sometimes, it’s actually beautiful. But always truth, because that is what light does. It exposes. And it’s not subjective. The bad thing about exposure, if there is a bad thing, is that the parts being exposed are vulnerable. And able to be hurt. But anyone who’s worked a camera knows you need light or you have nothing. I haven’t figured out the key to staying in light and being protected from pain. I think it has to do with holding on to truth and standing behind it. Wearing it. Once you know what it is. Living it. And maybe it’s just knowing that pain goes away. But truth doesn’t.
