Project 52 – Week 8 Landscapes

My interest with photography started with the goal of capturing a scene that for me was pleasing to the eyes and must be shared with the world. Using the only camera that I had back then, a point-and-shoot camera if you have to know, I started taking photos of places I visited or passed by.

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.
