Little bit of changing in the lighting to give a mystic effect.

A photograph can create a certain mood and communicate an idea that transcends its subject.

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.

Photo 101, Day Seven : BIG and Point of View


Day Seven: Big & Point of View

Cheri says:

Whether inside or outside, photograph something of massive size. Feel free to interpret big in your own way, and get creative with your shot. Capture all or just part of the subject. Place it in the foreground so it takes up the entire frame. Or shoot it from afar so it appears smaller — yet still prominent.

Massive tongue.
