It’s Always about the Light

Day 16 0f 30 Day Challenge

I did these two photos of the back side of a building in New Albany, Mississippi early one morning while out with my friend Lowry. In the first one I liked the raking shadows and how the light bounced off the right window onto the electrical circuit box in what should have been the shaded side of the box.

In the second one, I got closer, and filled the frame with what I cared most about. You can see the light came in hard from camera right. That light bounced of the window on the right onto the electrical box. It also bounced off the left window, onto the inside part of the window to the right. That right hand window should be all shaded without the bounce!

You can almost always take better photos by getting closer.

  1. Love it, Dave! And your technical description. LOL 🙂 Yup, you have to crop out the noise, so the subject gets the spotlight. 🙂 I do like the larger view, where you can see the window outline on the wall. But in that one, I don’t notice the impossible light on the electrical box.
