Photography 101-Warmth

A Picture of Her

Draw
in lines of
pure golden light,
highlighting
each smooth contour
in swathes of gentle
illumination,
bringing warmth and
emotion
to an otherwise
remote reflection of
reality.


Today’s challenge was to capture warmth using sunlight – not really possible here as we’ve had the most overcast day we’ve had in a while! So instead I chose to photograph a wooden statue of a woman and lit it using a lamp, a torch, and a candle. I started taking the photos around lunchtime and kept taking more over the course of the afternoon until it was dark outside and only the artificial light affected the image. I tried using different ISO settings, etc, and generally played around – though please don’t ask what any of the settings were! The picture I finally settled on wasn’t as sharp as some of the others I took, but it was the one that really leapt out as being ‘warm’, so I hope you all like it.

These are a few of others that were nearly chosen:

  1. Very artistic and a nice warm color. A bit of noise (high iso) but that makes in more mysterious I like it. Did you use a tripod?

    1. Thank you! And no, I didn’t use a tripod. After today and the difficulty I had getting a non-shaky shot, however, I will be going out and buying one. I’m a newbie with the technical side of photography and I’m only just getting into my stride. I’ve always before just taken pictures that I liked the look of using the preset modes. Is there a way of finding out all of those settings you have so kindly informed me of 😀 on the file or image, somehow?
