One thing that you really need to know as a photographer is how to work the light. So I’ve been on a mission recently, trying to take pictures in different lighting conditions to see how they affect the photos. I’ve had lots of fun with it and I also tried out a few tips I found on photography forums. It’s funny how you sometimes see a photo and you think – wow, I could never take something like that! But then someone explains on a forum how a photo like that is achieved, you try it and voila, you get a photo like that! Ok, maybe not quite as amazing but then you also didn’t use all the amazing equipment and software that professional photographers do (one day…). So have a look at a photo below and let me know what you think. It has flaws (like some marks in the background that I couldn’t brush off as I don’t have an appropriate tool), I know, but it was my first try on this kind of style.
I have other pictures from this whole lighting experimentation but let’s do one at a time… stay tuned. 🙂
