Photo101: Mystery & Lighting Effects (Day 10)

Day 10 already! The theme is “mystery”, with the extra tip to manipulate the light to create an effect; using highlights and shadows to convey mood.


I’m a couple of days late posting this (using the weekend to catch up), but I noticed the evening clouds yesterday (after the weather being a mix of overcast and light rain) and thought them quite dramatic and mysterious – like they were hiding something that was beginning to show through. For effect, I underexposed by two stops to ensure there were no blown highlights and plenty of colour in the bits of sky that are visible.
