Pics in the Parks: Challenge 8 - Light and shadows
Light and shadowsGoals:
To photograph the way light and shadows play on an object — not necessarily the object itself. Pay attention to the direction of the light.TIPS:
When the sun is behind you, it lights the subject directly — that is good for landscapes and portraits. When the sun is at your shoulder, you will see more depth and soft differences between highlights and shadows. Don’t look directly at the sun through your lens!Challenge:
Backlight an image (face the sun while shooting) to create a silhouette. Backlighting also creates sun flares, a great effect with some experimentation.
