I hate light
So, in my same old park that I'm starting to hate, I have apparently been shooting at the worst time of day. "The Golden hour" is an hour after sunrise and an hour before sunset. I'm usually at the park with the kiddos I keep around 4:30 pm... I'm apparently screwing up with that... not to mention all the shade generated by trees and my sucky composition.
Not being hard on myself, but take a look.
Bad composition. Shadow from one set of legs killing the other set.
Here, I had the kiddos turn around and face the sun. Thought the comp was okay, but again, a shadow, not too bad but none the less... I want to revisit this shot when I get my DSLR because there is potential, but I could not post any of these shoe shots to Flickr. Could not!
So, it's time for a lesson in light.
I'm using Pro Cam 2 on my iPhone 6 to take these images and I understand the flaw in using an iPhone but Pro Cam 2 has AMAZING features that give me the ability to control my exposure triangle. I constantly play with ISO and focus to try to get what I want but the light, the light! It's killing me. Must... eliminate... shadows... work on... composition!
This chart is awesome, wanted to share.
Anywho, done being mad at nature. This incident does two great things: 1. It pushes me further into my photography education and 2. It let's me know that technology advancement is a must. Can't keep doing what you're used to, especially if it's not working.
I posted two pics from yesterdays shoot. https://www.flickr.com/photos/bypinky/
