Week 3 – Ambience
While working through year one of my blog I attempted a wide-variety of Photography techniques. I suppose I figured if I was going to snap a photo every single day for an entire year that I may as well make those images interesting, and I may as well pick up a few tricks along the way. So over the course of the first year of my project I tried my hand at water refraction Photography, water droplet Photography, HDR Photography, low-key Photography, high-key Photography, high-speed Photography, motion blur Photography, B & W Photography, and my most favorite (yet certainly not my best) levitation Photography.
Levitation images are beautiful! They draw the viewer in to consider what’s happening in the image, and sustain that interest as the viewer tries to determine how it was done.
Of course it’s all an illusion, but, in my opinion anyway, levitation Photography is one of the coolest techniques out there. For the images of my hubby shot out on the water, my goal was to create an image that stood in stark contrast to the ambience of the location selected. The images I shot of myself were taken on a whim so the ambience of the location didn’t really play into what I was trying to capture. I must give big props to my hubby for standing in a pond on a ladder in a sport coat…
