Developing Your Eye II ~ Day One: “Warmth” — The Quality of Light

I was photo-shooting at the Heritage Festival some time ago under a very hot sun. Light intensity was extremely strong and I was sweating profusely like just came out from a shower. Tried this shot and hopefully my circuits in my DSLR camera are not fried. My sincere apology for the slower start as my internet at home is unstable and I was unwell too.

This is my submission for ” Warmth “. Feel the heat?

Day One: “Warmth” — The Quality of Light

Photography means “drawing with light.” When you take a picture with your camera, you use and record light to create an image. When we’re out and about, we often use the sun — our most abundant light source — to capture our scenes.

The Hagia Sophia is an impressive mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. If you ever find yourself wandering inside, here’s what you’ll see when you look up:

The spotlights on the chandeliers — combined with lots of ambient and natural light filtering in from outside — create a warm scene of yellows and golds.

For your first shooting challenge, capture an image of warmth, using the sun as your source. If the sun is nowhere to be found today, not to worry — interpret warmth in your own way.

Today’s Tip: Consider the direction and quality of light. Front light is great for outdoor landscapes and group portraits; a front-lit subject faces the light source, making it even-lit. Side light is fun to experiment with: the mix of light and shadow shows more depth and can create unexpected results.
