What cool light
Recently I have gotten really interested in the way that light affects the dynamics of an image. As a photographer you really just learn how to use light to flatter an image. It is so neat to watch how the light affects the overall image. Using a camera you can really create a very dynamic image by adjusting a few things. For instance shooting with a really wide aperture, which creates a lot more contrast and also blurs the background. In this image, you will see that this young man is in focus, but the background is very out of focus. This image is pretty contrasty simply because the light was very directional from a sunset. I was not planning on an image this dynamic, but it is still a pretty neat image.
