Light can You Wait? – Old Car
The secret about good photography as I have mentioned before is not rocket science. Yes there are things that you need to know about photography but once again for those who know me you will know how I stress the importance of waiting for the light, waiting for the elements to come together. Light can you wait?
The Key lie in do we have the patience to wait as I mentioned in the previous blog?
In this series of pictures of the old rustic car which is one of my favourite subjects to shoot.When Vicki and I arrived there the scene wasn’t that interesting. The light wasn’t over powering brilliant but that was about to change.Light can you wait?
On the horizon there was a few scattered clouds and they were coming our way. I’m alway reading the skies and that is also a key in getting lovely shots. I said to Vicki , “If we wait long enough this average scene is going to pop and transform into something that will be awesome.” Light can you wait?
So we waited and waited and waited.We sat, talked, sat, talked and talked and sat.
When the clouds come the light is totally transformed and when you have a good sky to work with, there is no such thing as bad light in my point of view.
When the elements come together it’s outstanding, it’s humbling and as a photographer it’s moving. I never get tired of an outstanding sky and you can throw a sky my way any time.Light can you wait?
These shots were taken over a 30 minute timescale as it was changing all the time and the drama was forming in the heavens above us.
The key in getting a shot that you really like, or is different from others lies in the willingness to wait and to have that thing we call ” Patience” Ive asked the question several times throughout this blog so I’ll end with it. Light can you wait?
