Photo365 – Day 337 – Passage of light

Another passage of light from the sun. This time through one window onto a kitchen cupboard. The light is so contrasty at this time of the year.

Photo365 – Day 287 – Shadows

Today was another remarkably warm day, and as the sun was low in the sky shadows were interesting. This is my rusty metal resting near a brick wall, and a garden chair causing the shadows. I split the elements in such a way that it now looks like two photos but it is just one.

Photo365 – Day 218 – tattoo

Well not really, but the power of the sun threw shadows from a pint glass on to a table so I placed my hand in the shot and let the shadow fall across my knuckles in a sort of love/hate way.

Photo365 – Day 204 – shadowman

A self portrait of sorts. I was in a room and noticed a reflection from a mirror hitting the wall and creating a rainbow shaped letter H. I took a few pics of that and spotted that the actual window light was also strong and part of my shadow was in the frame so I repositioned myself and balanced the shot creating this result.

Photo365 – Day 120 – alien

I’d just finished a day of decorating and the sun was low in the sky and found it’s path through a window on the door to create a shape on the newly painted wall. I added a shadow of my hand and snapped with the iphone. I played around in Lightroom to give it a more contrasty and colourful result. It looked a bit like an alien on the phone…what do you think?

Photo365 – Day 18 – Light & Shade

As I walked into the home office this morning I was greeted with a low level sun shining through the blinds. Its the first really sunny morning this year and the feeling was good. After I’d done looking at the previous night’s photos in the gallery and my cruise around the site I decided to take a few shots.

I used the red glass vase that was used fro my photo in front of the venation blinds on day 5 And placed it in front of a radiator. The light and reflections was spectacular so I framed up and took this photo. I went on to shoot close ups of the neck against the wall which gave really intense colour reflections. I also shot through the glass and used a wide aperture to throw the view out of focus for a more surreal set.

I hope my Photo365 series is showing you that you don’t have to go far to be creative…it’s just a little imagination needed to spark up some ideas.
