The Art of Harsh Light – Photography Challenge – Week #5

by Lucia

A new photography challenge is here! So many of you participated in the previous Harsh Light Challenge, thank you for your positive feedbacks!

I hope you all are having a bit of sun in the next days! Because you really enjoyed creating and learning harsh light, we will deep a bit more into this theme. Our next challenge will be about combining Abstract Art, Harsh Light and Food.

I love this challenge also for the reason, that for creating beautiful images you need minimum props. All you need is sun and some simple glasses or forks, water, tea or wine, and anything else you would love to photograph.

All the details are below, please, remember to tag your images with @healthygoodiesbylucia, mention me also in a caption and use also a hashtag #capturelearnandinspire, so I can see your entries.

Here, you can see some examples from Pinterest:

Be creative, play with shadows, make them part of the composition. Try to capture them diagonally, it makes the image more dynamic.
