What a blistering hot weekend! One of the hottest on record, it was 38C yesterday and 42C today (that’s 100F and 107F)! I haven’t experienced temperatures anywhere near that in a long time. Consequently, our light is bright all day.
I mostly followed the brief and took photos of a single location over the day – 7am, 10am, 12noon, 5pm and 6pm (sunrise at 4:45am, sunset at 6:17pm). Here’s the result below. All using a 17mm lens (35mm equivalent) and ISO200.
Even with the bright Aussie sun, you can see the change in colour and feel of the light over the day – it’s starts out with a “blue” feel and warms to golden over the course of the day. It was a neat experiment. I used an alarm on my iPhone to remind myself to take my photos at the right time 🙂
In between, I played with my little gnomes and my Lego Batman that I picked up the other day and experimented with the placement of artificial light and daylight as well. If you hover over the image, you can see where the light was positioned.
I was inspired to buy a Lego Batman the other day and I’ve had the gnomes for a few months. My inspiration came from 2 Jen’s / Jenny’s blogs found here and here. I love what they both do with miniatures and wit macro and it’s something I hope to really try out one day.
So then I just had FUN with reflections. How cool is light?
I’m loving this, thank you to the organisers, this is so much fun. I feel like I’m improving, but I think most of all it’s taught me to open up and be creative and not be afraid to try something.
Looking forward to the week ahead!
