Assignment 2 – bring on the full sun.

Assignment number 2 often brings a sigh of relief for students, after the more challenging first assignment.  This  assignment is all about shooting in the mid-day sun, and learning to handle harsh light. I think of the 8 assignments that are a part of this workshop, this is the one that really shows students the freedom that comes from being able to handle the light at any time of day. A photographer that can create beautiful images in harsh light is a photographer worth his salt, so to speak…and it’s not for the faint hearted. It takes a lot of courage to embrace the results of these techniques not taught in more traditional photography.

I get all giddy as assignments start to be submitted on the forum, I love the full sun images that have been posted over this last week. Here are a few from the submissions for assignment 2. I think the students are producing some awesome work, well done.  -g

The bonus assignment for this week was all about rain, and the beautiful light that often comes before, during and just after a storm. Not all students were able to access naturally rainy weather this week…. so they had to get a little more creative
