Autumn experiments #photography
I was in the mood for experimenting with photography this week and did some shots into the sun and played around with camera settings. This shot was a little boring, so I put my car in the foreground to make it look more interesting.
I was shooting into the sun for this shot and the aperture was wide,, picking up a lot of detail. You can see the pattern on the bark of the tree clearly. The sun was so bright it makes the landscape very light and almost white in places.
You can get interesting effects with the sun shining through leaves, but this shot lacks depth.
For this shot I had the light shining through the leaves and the goose’s feathers.
I have the light shining through the trees for this shot, but the road going away from us gives us some depth and makes for a better picture.
This picture has the variation in light and it has the depth as our eyes compare the size of the trees and compare the darkness of the foreground with the light of the background.
There are a lot of different shades of green in this picture as the camera really picks up the light. It’s quite unusual, but you can see what a sunny day it was.
Photography should be fun and so walk about in the sun and just shoot at whatever takes your fancy. Not every shot will work when you experiment. In fact, few of them will be really good. You will get some unusual shots that are good and totally different too. It adds to your knowledge of what can work and what doesn’t. Photographic art is a fairly new phenomenon and like all artists we have to experiment with colour and light and attempt to do something that hasn’t been done before.
