Good light, nice colors


deutsch_s1

Although I’ve been taking pictures for ages, I’m still always surprised how important good light actually is. Modern photo technology, and modern sensors in particular, make shooting good pictures easier even under suboptimal lighting conditions; however, higher resolution, higher color depth and larger headroom in the shadows and highlights can’t replace good light. Light is still by far the most important ingredient in taking photos.

And that’s exactly what I’ve been reminded of many times over the past few weeks. I felt like taking pictures, and so I often went for a photo walk, but the weather didn’t turn out to be nice. I only shot pictures that ended up in the recycle bin after I’d seen them on my computer. You could argue about whether flat light or the photographer is to be blamed. 😉 But one thing’s for sure, good pictures need inspiration. But are there photographers who feel inspired by the cloudy sky and who, as they look at it, keep thinking, “oh yeah, that looks so nice…I’ve got to take a pic right away”? 😉

No, I don’t think so. With nice weather you take photos so much more easily and conveniently. And even if the subjects are nothing special, as it’s obviously the case with these images here, at least the colors look very beautiful. 🙂
