Project 52: Quality of Light | Week 26

July 01, 2016  •  4 Comments

We're at the halfway point for the year, Week 26 of professional pet photography blog circle Project 52. This year for the project we've been covering topics from the book, "The Visual Toolbox: 60 Lessons for Stronger Photographers" by David DuChemin. We are in the middle of studying one of the most important aspects of photography, light. This week we are focusing on "quality of light." Not all light is created equal and paying attention to what the light is doing is important to making sure our images tell the story we want them to. 

Because my images for backlighting last week didn't meet my vision, I wanted to make up for it this week. I had recently discovered a location I wanted to shoot at and was really excited to try it out for my quality of light shoot. So, I packed up my gear, Mr. Bojangles, and my assistant (AKA the BF) and headed out. Fortunately, I timed my visit to this location well and mother nature cooperated perfectly.

Now, to see more light qualities, head over to see what BARKography formerly See Spot Run Photography in Charlotte, NC, has come up with; then head around the rest of the blog circle until you end up back here.

Gorgeous, Susannah. Your lighting is so pretty with that artsy looking sky. :O)
Love the sky and the light. The last one is my favorite. Mr. B's expression is adorable.
