From Eldorado Journal’s interview with Lane Coder:
[EJ]: How do you use light in your photography and what kind of light do you use?
[LC]: I have always been drawn to and in awe of natural light and if I am shooting at night, I like using the existing artificial light. If I cannot use natural light, I will spend a lot of time with my assistants replicating natural light or enhancing it. I am so sensitive to light, it is almost annoying, especially to the people around me. Every single light in my home is on a dimmer switch. Light is the most important element and the starting point with all of my photography; in addition classical painters have really influenced how I see light, shadow and composition.
