Short notes on photography III – the colour of light

IF IN WORDPRESS READER YOU WILL MISS OUT THE EXAMPLE SHOTS

[When I say “Short notes” I really mean short notes – I am not much of a writer so I prefer going straight to the point without any technicalities]

When shooting in natural light the time and lighting conditions are very important for the final result. To illustrate this I went out yesterday to the harbour, it was 45 minutes before the sun would set so the lighting conditions were rapidly changing.

By the sea were several oil cisterns ; plain metallic ones. But as you can see from the images the lighting conditions had a dramatic impact on the photos.

The yellow sun in the west contrasted nicely with the deep blue sky in the east.
