Shooting during the golden hour – the hour or so before the sun goes down – can result in some beautiful warm colors for your photos. In the case of this barn, the barn itself was a weathered grey with a deep rust colored roof surrounded by green grass and the grays and browns of last years growth and fallen trees. As I walked towards the barn I saw that the setting sun was at an angle where it was hitting me right in the eyes! If I had been shooting a shorter subject it wouldn’t have been an issue but in this case I needed to move around to get the warm light coming from behind and through the barn without blowing out the image.
Golden hour shooting tips here and here.
Thank you 🙂
Thank You For The Tips!
Anytime, my dear, anytime 🙂
I feel a lot like how that old barn looks this morning.
Rough night? Hope you are feeling better soon.
No time soon.
Sorry to hear that 😦
Very nice Teri! We both seem drawn to old and dilapidated things.
Thanks! You know me…I can go all roses or oh goodie it’s abandoned and falling apart 🙂
Thanks. More coming.
Well done, Teri, and thanks! I’ll be coming back here a few times before I leave. No telling what may present itself on this trip and I want to be ready. 🙂
Sounds interesting but knowing you it will turn out grand and probably tasty too!
Excellent – I love playing with light. I just spent my morning in Old Town Scottsdale and was thinking of you…. “now how would Teri capture this?” I always enjoy your vision.
BTW – at Wildlife World you can pet/touch turtles… I was giddy with delight and pushing the 6 year olds out of my way (just kidding about pushing kids but not about being giddy)
Awww thanks, Ingrid. Old Town is too much fun (when it’s not too freaking hot) with all sorts of people and things to photograph. Ok where is Wildlife World? That sounds good!
Wildlife World is on the far, far west side of the Valley past the football stadium. With the exception of lunch with flamingos, Nancy and I walked for four hours taking it all in. Super fun day!
The result is indeed dramatic! Well captured, Teri! 🙂
