This morning, I happened to be awake early enough to see the sunrise, and it was a very pretty one. I also happened to have my camera very handy – these scenes change very quickly. I find there’s always something emotionally powerful in the dawn.It's kind to share!
One of the fascinating parts of learning (by experience) about photography is finding out what a difference the direction and character of light makes to the way we see any object. Early yesterday (Saturday) morning, I went outdoors into strong sunlight. This was coming from a low angle, and the Sun in a clear sky is almost a point source of light. now, this is often horrible for portraits, but it gives punch to pictures of many ordinary things like these apples.
I really am the last person to talk when it comes to getting up when I don’t have to, but morning light really is amazing!
