Project 52 Weeks – Week 2 Light

In photography having the correct light is important and it is often use to add drama to the scene. As photographer we are taught of going for proper or correct exposure but that is not always the case. Here is one photo that I took of the inside of a chapel.

Here I went for the shot that highlights the altar using only the light coming from the window above the altar and from those coming from the roof. Having no tripod with me as this was an unplanned trip, I had to use the slowest shutter settings possible without producing camera shake. I still wanted to produce the effect of bringing the focus of the one looking at the photograph to the subject which is the altar.
This is the chapel viewed from the outside just to illustrate how harsh the light during the time I was taking the shot inside. This one I had to again make changes to my camera settings since more light is available, not doing so will leave me with an overexposed photograph.
What I learned during my almost three years in photography is that although we strive to get the correct exposure, sometimes breaking that rule produces good or even great photographs. This things you would not learn unless you get out with your camera and keep shooting.

Behind the lines

I took this photo because of how the lines intersect with each other and how it sort of present itself as frames to the background. I have been having trouble taking pictures at Ayala Center and around the Makati Central Business District. Continue reading Behind the lines

Appreciating beauty

Nice Scuplture at Bonifacio High StreetBeauty is in the eye of the beholder.

In simpler terms, to each his own. What may be beautiful for me may not be the same to you and vice-versa. Take for example this fountain in the middle of a mall, others may just pass by it and see it as nothing but that, a fountain and it is not even working. Continue reading Appreciating beauty
