Ok...we as photographers talk about the light...some get misty eyed as we talk, some get that romantic "way off" stare in their eyes, but ALL of us know that LIGHT is our craft.

So whether your in a studio controlling the light, or working with a given light that is controlling you, show me what "Beautiful Light" means to YOU.

This is one ANYONE should be able to participate in.

Love it, Roman. Nice time of year for some interesting twists on that theme as well.

Still nothing yet. I have not had the opportunity to get out much the last couple of weekends beyond work. Anyone else coming up with anything yet?

James,
haven't even tried. This week is the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship dog show here in Orlando and we've designed and are building/managing the American Rottweiler Club's Meet The Breeds Booth. Lots of work and it won't be over until next Monday. I'll post pics but in the meantime, no chance to address the December Challenge. Hope to do so next week. And, frankly, I can't wait!

Jim

I am waiting for examples. I know to shoot a little after sunrise, a little before sunset and to avoid midday light.

That is about the extent of my light knowledge. I am not sure what is considered beautiful light

I did spend time out doors taking pictures Sat afternoon and some were close to sunset. I am hoping one of them will work for this challenge

Hey Laura,

I think the term, "Beautiful Light" is a bit subjective. I think that it is safe to refer to this light as that time during the 'magic hour' before sunset and after sunrise where the light is long and the color is syrupy warm. I think that Roman's idea is that it can be created in any way that we like - either in the community or in the studio.

Yep, you can fully control the light, or you can be at its mercy (like in landscape work where you dont control it...it controls you)

Both are acceptable. Since I am not competing here are a few examples from my landscape work.

This is just a snap about 15 min before the sun came over the horizon. It's a simple shot from work on the 7th floor.


Here is some spotty light from the canopy above filtering on to a few leaves sprouting from the ground.


Here is some crazy light bouncing around a slot canyon, from deep shadow, to harsh brightness, it brings the canyon to life.



I have seen studio work with strong light coming from one side accentuating the pores in teh skin, and maybe some glistening sweat, or a still life with light balanced in such a way to make the scene come alive.

You get the idea.

Roman
