Photo 52: A Play on Light / Diffused [2]

This is the second week of exploring diffused light in Project Light.  Diffused light is light that comes from a relatively large source, producing a soft, even light that seems to wrap around objects.

The best example of diffused light is on an overcast day –  the clouds act as a natural diffuser, filtering the sunlight to product soft and balanced light that is slightly bluish in color and eliminates virtually all shadows.  This image was taken during a break in an otherwise wet, rainy day.

Please go around the circle to see how my fellow photographers have utilized diffused light this week.  Next up is my friend, the talented, Brooklyn-based Kelly Roth Patton of K. Rox Photography.

I took this photo for an assignment in a workshop that I just wrapped up, Fine Art and Visual Expression. Take a look at some of my photos from the class here, here and here, with week 4’s post coming tomorrow.

Last, but not least, please vote for my good friend Erica Collins!  An image from her blog Five Little Ones was nominated to be the April image of the month on Beyond the Wanderlust.  Please visit **here** to see it (image #7, the gorgeous backlit image of her son wearing a mask) and consider voting for her.  Vote by liking or commenting on her image – the deadline is tomorrow, May 14th.  Go Erica!

    Erica Collins - I love the colors in this and the OOF-y reflection on the window. Fantastic capture! And, of course thank you for the link to the contest! How sad is it that I forgot to include that on my own post. :0ReplyCancel

    Erica G. - Beautiful bokeh! I like the repetition in the reflection, and the way the green (grass?) nice divides the composition. And the person makes a nice pop of color. Really lovely.ReplyCancel
