The Importance of Lighting

Lighting is so important and I have written
about the golden or magic hour previously. They are the first and last hours of the day when the sunlight is warmer. Well the photo on the right is just at the start of the morning hour and that explains why you don't see anyone on the London Eye.

I went round the red bus tours so I am now full of useless information. There are 32 capsules on the Eye, each capsule holds up to 25 people, it takes around 30 minutes to get round and each of those capsules represents a London borough.

The photo on the left includes County Hall and this wasn't taken early in the morning but it still shows the importance of lighting. The subjects are well lit but the sky has character because of the shades of cloud. This would have been lost with a completely blue sky and a third of the photo would have been a lot less interesting.

Happy snapping
