We’re halfway through the Photo 101 online course and I am glad I’ve made it this far. Although sometimes I respond to the course assignments a day late, I still make it a point to publish a photo that adheres to the current topic or theme.
From Day 9’s Warmth & the Quality of Light, we continue to play with light and its varying effects on photography in Mystery & Lighting Effects. When we think about mystery, we imagine dark photos with light just enough to highlight important elements. Light, in this photo, accentuates the physique of the dancers and helps in depicting movement as they perform.
These two ballet dancers are some of the many performers in Halili-Cruz School of Ballet’s Celebration of Dance where my niece, Julia, performed too.
If you’re also taking the Photo 101 online course, feel free to share your interpretation of “Mystery & Lighting Effects” by typing in the link to the blog post on the comments section.
