The Nature Of Photography: Light

Okay, so, today, my subject is light. Light is an interesting subject, if thought of the right way. We only see white light, with the exception of a sunset or a bright streetlight or something like that. Why? Well, it’s because we are used to the sun’s bright white light. So therefore, we only see white. But our cameras see all different colors of light. Also, light has a temperature, depending on the color. I can actually prove that. You know how, if you wake up right when the light is coming out, the landscape outside is bluish, that’s because the light is cold. And at sunset, the light is a little golden, so it’s warm. But, did you know that certain lights in your home are certain colors. Florescent light actually let out green light, yeah, it’s really weird. Lamps in your home probably let out golden light, and that is pretty easy to see. But I need to tell you about taking the photos. When taking photos in blueish light, go to your WB settings and use the cloudy day setting to drown out the blue light, if that’s what you want. If your taking photos in a grocery store (for whatever reason), use the florescent lighting setting to drown those green flares out with a screen of magenta. And finally, if you are wanting a cold photo, but your in the wrong setting, use the lightbulb setting for your WB. Now, my challenge for you is to take 3 photos set in: Blue light, Green light, and Golden light scenes, then share them to me!
