Light Is My Friend — Light Study & Flickr Slideshow
It’s been a while since I posted a photo essay of my neighborhood — Hollywood Park in the south part of Sacramento. These are photos that I take with my iPhone while out walking the dogs. The two best times of day for taking pictures outdoors is in the morning and in the late afternoon/dusk, when the sun is low, either rising or setting, and the shadows and cross light is at interesting angles.
A few of the snaps were also taken in the KCRA back parking lot.
I used to take these photos with an Android, but am now using the iPhone G5. The choice of phone is not mine — they are provided by KCRA-TV, where I work. As a photographer I am always drawn to light and how it effects how things look. So I regard these photos as exercises in keeping the eye alert and the gray cells always stimulated.
Also, this post is an experiment. I love seeing slideshows on other sites. With this show I’m testing out the slideshow offered by Flickr at http://flickrslidr.com/index.php
If you like it, you might want to try it out as well.
