Personal Photo Challeng-Light

Our assignment:   "In this exercise, light takes center stage and commands your attention. It can be dramatic or softly caressing. It can be natural light or it can be man-made: backlight, sidelight, spotlight, candlelight, light beams streaming from clouds, twinkling lights, lamp light, street light, reflected light. There are so many possibilities, and you have the freedom to decide. But light should play a key role to support your subject or actually be your subject."

All of these were taken without the flash with my Olympus 
Super wide lens.

Found this in my archives. Mixing the  condensed milk and cool whip for a Surprise Pie.
Notice the color of the vanilla on the fluffy mixture and on the beater.
The light was coming from the light over the counter. 
The vanilla partly mixed gives it the look of silver and gold.

Out at Nazareth campus today I looked up at the sun shining through this pine tree got a shot.
When  looking at it at home I noticed the purple look of the pine cones from the sun. 
Could not have planned that if I tried.

While guiding a couple on a tour through the building I noticed the colored rays of the sun coming in from the stain glassed window over the doorway.
After the tour was finished I went back to the parlor and got this shot.
No flash was used.

A vase of flowers sitting on my desk with drapery tiebacks hanging on one of the flowers.

I tilted my lamp straight on these and shot it without the flash.
Love the shadows and texture of the ties.

Go here for more light shots.

That is a spruce tree, Peggy! I have one in my backyard. I love how the boughs drape. I could dive into that bowl
=D My favorite photo is the chair with all that glorious light bouncing about.

These are all creative and lovely. I especially like the stained glass light reflections on the wall - so disco, LOL! And my favorite is the last one with the sparkly tiebacks. Yep, nice shadows and texture there!

These shots are truly beautiful. Would work also for the FSO... Why not do two. Linkz hasn't closed yet.... Happy Sunday to you.

How right you are Vee that is a Spruce tree. Thanks for calling my attention to it. I am not much of a tree identifier.

I love the play of light on the chair - such a fun and beautiful photo. The photo with the beaters and white fluff is so creative. Beauty is found everywhere.
