People in "the street"

Sometimes, people just make the best pictures, especially when caught, just doing their 'thing.'

The Evening, the night, the magic

The evening often creates its own magic, as does the lights of the night and the very early morning. Just take a bunch of photos, and something good may turn up. Good luck!

Late afternoon, using the dramatic lights

These are just two examples of using the natural light of late afternoon to full effect. The first two are of our house at midday, then late afternoon. The next two are of our pond, with the first one being midday, and the next one much more dramatic in late afternoon.

Midday, or how to cheat.

Midday light brings about its own challenges, and the main one is how to make things look less washed out. In the first picture, pointing down after getting your meter reading, or, if you have manual controls, just setting one's aperture up a notch can make the difference. In the second and third pictures, just moving your attention to things in the shade can yield big dividends. Or, like the fourth picture, using a zoom lens, to get away from the distracting background scenery may just be what you need.
