    Hello all,

    I've always been interested in the work of David Loftus, he's primarily a food photographer but does portraiture and interior stuff also. His work always stood out for it's simple beauty, and his images seem to 'glow' somehow.. I can't attach a picture or link, but his website is www.davidloftus.com

    Anyways that's what I was wondering about- that brightness and 'glow' he seems to achieve- does anyone who's seen his work know how he does this? His images look wonderfully bright to the point where they're just on the acceptable side of overexposure, and I think the effect is amazing. I know that he only uses natural light/reflectors etc, and a Hasselblad of some kind- very simple stuff. Is it something he does in the darkroom maybe? Any thoughts/ideas would be much appreciated.

    Cheers~ Ben

    90% lighting. He's not afraid of the dark.
