Light the Way

Photography Class – Day 10

Theme: Mystery & Lighting Effects.

A photograph can create a certain mood and communicate an idea that transcends its subject. Today, share an image that creates a sense of mystery. A lone mitten on the sidewalk. A trail leading off into the distance. Your dog’s deep brown eyes. Intrigue us with the feeling of uncertainty.

Wonder what happens here after dark? I’m intrigued by the contrast between the light and dark forms and the shadows. What kind of light would be cast at night by the one single mushroom lamp-post, or maybe there are more. What does this walkway lead to and is this safe?

Thanks for reading and wondering!

Capturing the Light

Photography Class – Day Nine

Theme: Warmth & the Quality of Light.

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

Today was a sunny day in southern Michigan, but all the pretty snow is starting to melt now, and it’s not as picturesque as I would prefer. (bummer). So going back to last Fall seemed perfect…

I always enjoy going for a walk in late afternoon with Mom. This day was perfect for capturing the light in a nature photograph. The sun painted an amazing warmth on the amber-colored leaves. The shadows are in higher contrast in this photo of the old tree. The crooked branches became more pronounced, more dramatic, and rich on the stunning blue background with soft pink clouds. The primary colors in this scene drew me in…I soaked up the moment…and the sun.
