Now when you’ve already observed how light works, let us get into a little bit more!
Light has its own characteristics and is one of the very important aspects of Physics.
How important is Light in Photography? A lot of people would push on to this and say “Light is the most important part of photography” i would respect that thought for sure but disagree to the fact of it being most important.
Let us say Light is that white background that every painter uses to paint on.
He may make a sunset out of it or a sunrise, a simple still life painting too!
The one thing that light does in every painting or picture is that it decides the mood of that visual!
A black and white has its own way of showing Drama, color has its own way of showcasing happiness!
Lets get a little technical here and talk about how mood and color work.
As we all know since school, we have Primary colors, secondary colors and so on and so forth till the end where we have complimentary and supplementary colors!
what is this color harmony and how does it affect us ?
There are 2 pictures here, one is a late evening picture of clouds moving from a snow capped mountain and the other is a early morning breakfast picture!
As you could see the color wheel showcasing warm and cool colors, observe how the color harmony is used to generate mood in an image!
cooler picture is a landscape and warmer picture is of food.
This is just an introduction to how colors work, we can get very complex with this and generate some extra-ordinary visuals.
Try and understand such color schemes in photographs you like, you will then be able to get a deeper understanding on what sort of images you want to create.
