Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

Streets of London

Streets of London

This week’s challenge asked us to “Take a picture of yourself or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or – as in the example – the foreground, the center of attention”.

This is a photo I took a few weeks back when passing through the London Bridge area. The sun was bright and warm and had called all manner of people out onto the streets – which made for some good people watching; whilst the blinding light tested my ability to capture more than just shadows.

I like the way that this image turned out, but I really need to keep practicing. Anyone have any tips for shooting in bright light, please drop me a note in the comment box below.

  1. Very nice image! Shooting in bright light is really challenging and I don’t do it that often.
    But I hope, that my thoughts will be helpful to you:
    -always have a lens hood on your lens to reduce unwanted flares
    -make a bracketing sequence with different exposure times
    -try to hide the bright source of light behind a sign, a persons head or something else.
    -HDR photography (usually made of a bracketing sequence and then put together with HDR software) is a great way to increase the dynamic range of a picture in bright light situations.
    Have a nice time,
