Following on from my role as one of the judges for the high street retail giant CurrysPC World in their extremely popular six week photographic challenge earlier in the year. Where I set the public who entered the task of understanding and displaying composition within their submitted image. I have had my first blog post go live on their website covering Winter Light, side and back.
Winter Light, Side and Back
As the winter solstice will soon be upon us, you can read my first blog post for CurrysPCWorld. There are few greater opportunities for dramatic lighting within your photographs than a good winters day. During the winter months the UK as part of the Northern Hemisphere is at the closest point to the Sun, these days are shorter and the Sun is low in the sky giving some of the best light a photographer can wish for.
On the shortest day of the year, known as the winter solstice, the Sun is at the lowest point within the southern sky. During the short winter days the Sun does not rise exactly in the east, but instead rises just south of east and it sets south of west.
