One of my first projects of 2013 is to be participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge.
Each participant creates a photo to illustrate the weekly theme. But of course, it is harder to do in practice. You challenge yourself once a week, to creatively invent your version of the theme.
That is why it is a challenge!
This week’s theme is : resolved. Each of the participants has to illustrate his/her New Year’s resolution(s). This includes Photographic resolutions . My resolution for 2013. is the following:
I resolve to improve my use of light.
It might not seem like a very original resolution for a photographer but it is a very basic one.
There are uses of light that I have not even begun to do or I have already tried difficultly: night photography, sunsets or sunrises, interiors, and tricky conditions where light and dark are mingled.
This learning includes also mastering the shutter speeds, apertures, flash and all the rest that I need to know.
I have included three photographs with different types of light. They have never been published online.
If you are visiting here for the first time through the weekly challenge, Welcome!
Enjoy the photos.
