As we move into spring here in the northern hemisphere the number of daylight hours increases. It’s a great thing to celebrate after so many hours of darkness daily, and as light is so important in photography I thought we’d celebrate by sharing some rays of sunlight images from 500px with you.
28 images of the frozen land of winter for you to enjoy and inspire you to get out in the cold and go create something beautiful!
Get a sense of learning to see light by looking at images in monochrome, or black and white. It reduces photography to purely tones and shapes and helps eliminate distractions. Black and white can be high contrast and dramatic as well and has a very different mode than color. Enjoy this set of black and white images to look at the light.
A new feature I’m starting here on Digital Photo Mentor – an image collection. Every now and then (once a month) I’ll share a selection of images meant to give you some inspiration. So use it however you want, bookmark it, share it on social media, get ideas from it, or just say some “ooohs” and “awwws” and get out and go take some photos of your own!
For the last 3 weeks I’ve been on the road travelling through the US and spending time on the Oregon coast, which is absolutely one of our favourite places to hang out. Great people, stunning locations, and amazing food. If you haven’t been I suggest a road trip if you’re near, or make it a destination if you’re a bit farther afield. So I thought I’d share a few of my images with you to inspire you to get out and shoot yourself.
