Do Lights Ruin or Enhance Your Photographs?
November 13, 2018
For the most part, we try to avoid getting street lights or other lights in our photographs, especially during the day. Obviously it gets much harder to avoid them as the sun starts to go down and often they are useful to help illuminate the subject of the photograph. The issue, of course, is that you can’t control the amount of light being emitted and sometimes the light grabs your attention more than the focal point of the picture. As we’ve said many times, we’re not professional photographers, but just point and click with varied results. On some occasions we have actively focused on a light because we simply found it to be an interesting subject. We have included several photographs here as examples, but what do you think about taking photos with lights in them?
