Photo 101, Day Nine : Warmth and quality of light

Today’s Tip: If you’d like to experiment more, consider the direction and quality of light. First, let’s talk about front light and side light.

Front light is great for outdoor landscapes and group portraits, and can certainly capture warmth. Side light is fun to experiment with, especially for portraiture, fine art, and architecture.

  1. We like them all, but we’re attracted to the third one, Trompie., because it’s hidden between the leaves and still clear 🙂
    I think we catched up on you, so we’re leaving you Extra Pawkisses for the weekend 🙂 ❤


    • I agree with three it makes you wonder what is is behind it! Thanks for reading all my posts. I just had to do something to catch up myself. Licks and paws up and hug for grams too! 😀

  2. Both no 1 and no 3. I like the light from behind in no 3 as it’s almost a bit mysterious (the indirect light makes me curious to see what lies behind the subject of the photo because it’s not obvious).


    • Thanks for your visit and lovely comment. No 3 is my best one too because the light was just right. I took a few photos at that time of day and it is worth the while.
