Project 52 | Week 5: Finding the light!

Light! It’s such a beautiful thing and one of the most important components of photography. Without it, it’s almost nearly impossible to take a photograph. Consider the meaning of the word ‘photograph’ –

a picture made using a camera, in which an image is focused on to light-sensitive material and then made visible and permanent by chemical treatment, or stored digitally (source: Oxford Dictionaries).

Depending on the light source and the time of day, each image you take is going to be different.  Early morning light is much cooler and can appear more blue in images and in contrast late afternoon light is a warmer colour full of hues of orange, pinks and yellows! I personally love afternoon light. It just has such a beautiful tone and adds such depth to images.

This week I have been out capturing all sorts of light. From early morning dew drops glistening on the grass to late afternoon sunsets, rich in warm shades of orange, to the full moon night sky. It’s been interesting to just observe and take in all of the beauty that nature has to offer.  I have been driving around all over the place in search of great light shots! Hopefully my neighbours have not reported me for loitering outside their yards and taking photos of fences, trees, flowers and sunsets yet! 🙂 So here is what I’ve been shooting this week.
