In the Beginning… there was Light without Flash!

by Cyndilu Miller on November 10, 2014

Photo of a Sunset in the distance with a glow on the hilltop - bright light the focus on this one.

On this one – My angle was catching more of the forefront image and the light in the sky overshadowed the glow of color around the hilltop.

Photo of a Sunset in the distance with a glow on the hilltop - horizon line and dark hills was the focus on this one.

On this one – My angle was catching more of the mid-range image and the hills in the distance focus was on the horizon allowing for better capture of the color around the hilltop.

When I first started taking photos in a college course I was captured by the ability to take photos without flash! Thus began my journey into the world of Natural Lighting and the camera picking up what is sees through the lens and learning to adjust the photo to include the most or least illuminated spot in the frame.

The same photo taken with a slightly different camera lens angle will give you two very unique views. These views are all around us everyday but often missed either in the bright light or the overwhelming darkness. Learning to adjust the amount of time a subject is exposed to the light is another way of getting a photo that is fun and might not normally be seen in the dark.

I hope you enjoy as I share the results of my journey through the world of light, darkness and exposure time adjustments.

Blessings,

Cyndilu
