It is that time of year; our beautiful long, hot summer is fading into a gorgeous tumult of colours we call Autumn … sorry, I forgot myself, … for the first time in ten years we had a half decent summer and September wasnt too bad, but it won’t be long before we enter that six months period of darkness that we in Scotland (especially those from warmer climes) call the eternal night. Winter, to the locals! So I thought i would republish something I wrote for my old blog which is relevant to this time of year.
Photographers are obsessed with light and so they should be, but they do complain about it constantly; too much, not enough, in the wrong place, wrong colour. In Scotland we are blessed with beautiful long summer evenings (sometimes, one or two) and I have shot late into the evening in July under only natural light. The flip side of that is winter weddings. More and more couples are choosing to be married in December and January, for a whole host of reasons. Natural light is at a premium, with the sun setting as early as 3.30pm. Understanding how to overcome prevailing conditions – harsh sun light, fluorescent or tungsten indoors, a heavily shadowed doorway – is what makes a competent photographer, the minimum one would expect from a paid professional contracted to provide a service. The manipulation of light is what creates that stunning image. It is that subtle alteration or addition that a dedicated artist adds.
