I haven’t posted recent work in quite some time so I’m going to make a conscious effort to do so from now on. Furthermore, I will try and spread the themes around a little because once the summer hits there is likely to be a flood of baby photos. Great, just what people need to see. More baby photos. I promise to keep that to a minimum. So…..
I was walking around town the other day, shooting photos for the weekly challenge that Adam and I engage in on The Two Hosers Photo Show, and decided to experiment a little with shadows in broad daylight. The sun was getting lower in the sky creating really intense light on the cobblestones streets. Rather than look for shaded areas or keep my back to the sun, I decided to shoot into it and see what I produce.
These shots were made with a Canon 5D mkII and a 50mm f1.4 lens. In order to get these exposures I dialed in ISO 100 and as fast a shutter speed as I could manage- sometimes up to 1/8000 sec in order to maintain a wide aperture and get some DOF.
