Chasing Light and Shadows



I used to shy away from shooting in the too-bright sun, but now I actually love what it gives me.  Especially when there are objects to partially block it, giving me some great shadows to offset the brightness.

Street photography with strong light and shadows just go so well together! I always enjoy your work!

The light and detail of this photo amaze me. I could stare at it for a long time and imagine the lives of the people rushing by. The woman in a mask (?), the thoughtful woman in the foreground. Love it!

yes actually "against the light" can create some great images. I love this B&W street photography. I wish I lived in a place that lead to more interesting street photography. Wishing you all the best for 2015

For portraits, no way; for lifestyle images - absolutely. Life doesn't stop and only show itself when the lighting is "right". Fantastic shot, filled with interest.

Kim Stevens said...

Me too, and I think it's a great rule to break!
