Photographers never tire of the discussion about light. It is, after all, a basic building block of our art.
What many new photographers don’t realize is that light changes. In fact, it changes constantly. And as light changes, the object(s) it illuminates also change.
This is why we can stand in the exact same spot, and take the exact same picture, as say… Ansel Adams in Yosemite- and it will look completely different.
Light changes by the second, the minute, the hour, the day, the month, and the year.
Our Quick Guide this week gives you a primer on three main characteristics of light.
In this case, the term ‘characteristics’ means- they’re flexible- they’re subject to change.
Jason Row will be sharing with you his thoughts on-
- Light and shadow
- Color and light
- The soft and hard edges of light
