Chris Marquardt ... getting Light

Episode 1730 (1:20:07)

Chris Marquardt

Chris joins Leo to talk about the properties of light in photography. Color is a property of light that expresses the mood of the light. Blue is cold, red is hot. Color can strengthen a mood. Sunsets can look warmer, even in colder light, which gets subdued as the sun slips to the horizon. 

Direction. Light direction changes as the sun moves. It can also set the mood through shadow.

Soft vs. Hard. Hard shadows can also review what the size of the light source is. It's called a point light source. 

Here's the link to a Flickr gallery put together for this:

Our next photo assignment is - REFLECTION. Take a photo of, about, or otherwise concerning the concept of "REFLECTION" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "TGREFLECTION" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
