Photo of the Week: Abbie Redmon

InstantDC is pleased to present the Instagram Photo of the Week, shot by the talented Abbie Redmon (@abbiemred).

Abbie has an excellent eye and a wide range of wonderful images on her feed–this is just one of many we loved.

Thanks so much for sharing, and congratulations, Abbie! Fantastic work!

The story of the photo is pretty simple. I was riding my bike home from dinner in my neighborhood one night, and I saw the light over that door.

I knew it would make a nice frame, so I pulled over and snapped a few shots. The darkness of the surrounds and the spotlight-like effect from the lamp created excellent fodder for a black and white conversion.

I taught myself the basics of exposure and composition with a Canon DSLR four years ago (learning all the time), but Instagram has taught me more about photography than I thought possible.

The square frame, the mobile medium, the simplicity of it – I am forever grateful to this amazing community for teaching me so much and providing endless inspiration.”
