Imagecraft Bootcamp – Shooting from the Dark Side

After my initial disappointment of not becoming a Sith Warrior (hehehe I’m a Sci-Fi fan too), I continued reading this week’s assignment, Shooting on the Dark Side, I quickly realised this is something I instinctively do; apparently I’m a little strange! (Nothing new there, right?)

Now, how cool is all that detail? Granted it is not glaring bright sunshine, but the light coming from those clouds and the deep shadows of the old shed serve the purpose here.

OK So no real bright extreme light either, but you aren’t supposed to shoot from a really dark room into bright light are you? I still find you can retain more of the image and get a sense of depth and interest by recovering some, but not all of the shadows.

Still want more light? OK Well how about this, actually used a different method, but the same end result.

Thanks Mitch (this week is very enlightening – sorry!), perhaps I am a Sith Warrior, “follow to the dark side you will, no?”

Til next time, happy snapping…..
