Backlit

It’s funny how the lack of light can make us more creative. Sometimes I hear people complaining about these dark days in december (for the readers on the northern part of the globe). They tell me it’s useless to go outside and take pictures. For me, working with concentrated light from windows, it makes me even more aware of the quality and quantity of light. Contrasts can be high and one needs to be able to ‘guesstimate’ light very fast, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s rewarding and it makes you a better shooter. Just try it for yourself.
