Love of the Lens – Tips and Techniques


Using Light Creatively

A photograph is simply reflected light. So knowing how to capture reflected light is key and in nature light is dynamic, changing even from minute to minute.

Bad weather is often not so bad and can create a dramatic scene.  Storm clouds add movement and the color can reflect from different angles creating a range of colors.  The cloud will also diffuse light so that the landscape is darker and the photography can focus on the brightly lite sky.   Add an extra touch of warmth in post production and  you’ve good something to talk about.

So next time a storm is approaching, gear up accordingly and capture some terrific images.
