A new month brings a new photo challenge from perelincolors to Lucile’s blog! This month’s challenge is an easy one. Choose whatever subject you like, use whatever gear you have, but take your picture when the light is at its best.
The first prime time of the day is just after sunrise and in the early morning. Unlike your ‘Tech of the month’ co-host Lucile, I rarely get out that early. But every time I did, it was worth it.
Luckily, late afternoon light is just as flattering and can make just about anything look beautiful. Even garbage.
I took these pictures on the first of May in Kreuzberg, Berlin. We arrived about an hour before sunset and it was obvious that the party had been going on for a while already. For a more romantic perspective on soft evening light, have a look at this post from Justine of Eclectic odds n sods.
If even late afternoon is too early for you, get out at dusk. Try to capture the sunset or play with a mixture of light from the sky and artificial sources (provided that you live in a city).
Last month’s topic was ”Point of View’. Be sure to check out these awesome in-time contributions to the challenge:
The BeeSpeak: Low blossoms
Musings of a frequently flying scientist: Arterial Canopy
belgianstreets: tram (point of view)
Lucile De Godoy: Point of view: Photo101 Rehab
perelincolors: Modern architecture – Seoul city hall
To participate this time, head out at sunset, track the last sun beams of the day or roam the streets of your city at dusk. Publish your picture and notify us by creating a pingback to this post or leaving your link in the comments section. Don’t forget to also submit your images to Lucile’s Photo Rehab, it’s a lovely place to hang out!
