At a loss for.....light!
Photography is truly and art, and a science too.
We at Fashionably Yours, belong to that group of photographers who clicks away with glee whenever in hold of an easy point and shoot which requires no technical know-how or complex manual adjustments.
We have, many a times, thought of investing into a good DSLR, but the very thought of carrying a separate pouch and a bigger camera while on vacation, has refrained us from doing so (how silly. eh?)
Now that I have started blogging, the hubby is insisting on a DSLR, as photography surely plays a pivotal role in a fashion blog.
I, of course, understand the simple equation of DSLR= better quality picture, but then, we can at least get the basics right in a basic device, can't we?
All this while, we have been debating about the ideal or optimum level of natural light for a good quality photograph. We have tried everything under the sun ( I mean, literally under the sun)- morning light, afternoon light, evening light, bright sunny day, cloudy day, direct sunlight, shadow, light and shadow- but could not yet come to a conclusion as to which is better. Sometimes a photograph turns out to be bright and beautiful and sometimes dull and shabby, in the same amount of natural light! And then there is always the problem of an ugly shadow being cast by the subject, i.e. myself!
Even this morning, he was pushing me under the shadow of a tree, resulting in a photograph which is too dark, and I was trying to sneak out into the bright sunlight, resulting in a photograph which is too white!
We are unable to figure out the best light for a better photograph.
We seem to be perpetually at a loss for........ light!
Please do tell me if you have any tips regarding the ideal amount of natural light for a better quality photograph! I would love to hear them!
