About Ed

I am an Anglican Franciscan, and I hold an M.A. in Theology. I delight in the word, and I enjoy highlighting our world's beauty, pathos and majesty through photography.

Color Contrasts

The interplay of light, shadow, and color

  • Moonrise & Sunset

    Wyman Park. Summer 2010. Copyright 2010 by Ed Schneider
  • Wyman Park Drive, February 2010

    The light is from a street lamp. I've always liked the way street lamps illuminate a snowy landscape because familiar scenes are suddenly presented in new, dramatically startling ways. Copyright 2010 by Ed Schneider.
  • In the bleak mid-winter

    Wyman Park February 2010. This is the same scene as the previous photo, but it was taken at sunset. Copyright 2010 by Ed Schneider.
  • Infinity Mirror by Bob Benson

    One of Bob's many creative light and mirror objects d'art. Photo copyright 2010 by Ed Schneider.
  • Sedona, AZ

    Perhaps this type of scene is a cliche by now, but the dramatic contrasts in colors, the upward thrusts of the rock formations that seem to reach for the ethereal clouds - a metaphor of the spiritual journey - are still visually exciting. Copyright 2010 by Ed Schneider.
  • Frog Pond

    Dallastown, Pennsylvania. Copyright 2010 by Ed Schneider.
  • The Sioux Falls

    Sioux Falls, S.D. June 2010. The kinetic energy of the water is in tension with the immovable rock, and the variations in color from white foam through various shades of red rock and gray/blue water all give this image dynamism. Copyright 2010 by Ed Schneider.
  • Chenonceau, Loire Valley

    Cool greens and grey/greens on the trees are highlighted by a bright grey sky and bordered by a light grey road. The vertical thrust of the trees also contrast nicely with the horizontal road. Copyright 2010 by Ed Schneider
  • Striped cat on a striped blanket

  • Desert Flowers

    Tucson, AZ. Copyright 2010 by Ed Schneider.
