Observing the Quality of Light – Photography 101

Light is photography, light is life. It’s light that reveals and hides objects, it  can create shadows and depth, or make them disappear and flatten objects. Light is the key to creating vibrant images; so knowing how light changes in intensity and quality very quickly, as well as reflective values of object is one of the hardest things to master.

Light can be hard and directional producing well-defined shadows, or it can be soft and diffused producing softer shadows; each will give you a different effect or mood in your photograph.

Hard light for example isn’t very becoming for flesh, it tends to create shadows from wrinkles and pores. Back lighting an object can accentuate colors and can also be utilized for creating silhouettes and halos. Side lighting can emphasize textures through shadows, and front lighting flattens a photo.

Beauty in Decal, States of Erosion Image 5

Coastal Nature Photo "States of Erosion Image 5 Whelk Shell" by landscape and nature photographer Melissa FagueStates of Erosion Image 5 Whelk Shell Fine Art Nature Photography

This project was created to showcase the details & color variations of a variety of Whelk shells found in Hatteras, North Carolina. These shells where found logged in the grooves of a large steel jetty near the site of the old Cape Hatteras Lighthouse; they were there for an unknown amount of years and each is in its own state of erosion. The project was designed to highlight the smooth edges that formed on the shells from the years of tumbling on the ocean floor or the water rushing over them once they were logged in the jetty. The shells were all photographed on a solid black background to eliminate any distractions & to keep the focus strictly on the curves, colors, & damage of the shells.
