Painting With Light By Carolyn Himes

Creating with light is my paint brush. Finding the light is essential.

Working with color to create hand painted backgrounds and surfaces compliments most of my themed shoots. Vintage and weathered surfaces often help me tell a story that preserves the old and welcomes the new.


From ceiling tiles to vintage trays, I have a passion for texture, color, and age. Old is beautiful.

All of the actions lead me here...a place where the elements compliment each other and are adorned in the natural light. I am a picture maker.

"I believe we eat with our eyes first."

Mindful, sustainable food is one of my favorite mediums to document...because this is where healthy meets delicious. The colors are so alive!

"There is a crack in everything...that's how the light gets in." #carolynhimes #foodphotography
