I had him turn his body to explore the different shadows that could be created by the light coming in. I went with this one as he wasn't squinting from the sun glare and the shadowing wasn't too hard on the face.
L1M1AP3: Composition & Balance, ISO200, F6.3, 1/160, Tripod. I emphasised the object by zooming in and moving slightly left of the bike. I also moved the tripod down level with the bike rather than at eye view to my standing position. By doing this it made the bike appear larger hence drawing your eye to the bike and not the house.
L1M1AP2: BRIGHTNESS, ISO180, F8, 1/250. Tripod. Sun was very strong to the right causing one side of the face to have a lot of sun glare whilst the other side was getting lost in the shadow. I actually don't like this shot. I was concentrating on getting the brightness but I should have got a bit lower down looking up on an angle as I have made him appear shorter than he actually is.
Sun was coming in hard from the right but his head was turned slightly to my left. This gave that whole side of the face full shadowing but hasn't left it too dark. I don't mind the contrast of shadow and light here!
TIME OF DAY, Hand held. Sun was directly behind me. I was lying down to avoid casting my own shadow into the image. I love the bright blues in this shot. I took the same photo closer to sunset and colours were very dull in comparison.
L1M1AP3: Rule of Thirds @ Sunset, ISO220, F5.6, 1/125 Hand Held. I tried to use the rule of thirds both vertically and horizontally in this shot of the unsuspecting fisherman. I am really loving this shot as I think it tells a story. I am also happy with the colours in the the sky that are reflecting in the wet sand.
L1M1AP3: Lines, ISO 100, F9, 1/320. I went with the vertical version of this image as the hand rail leads your eye to the lighthouse. The landscape version of the image shows more of the road to the left which leads your eye away from the lighthouse. I had to take the image quickly as a bus load of people were about to invade my empty path. Had i had more time I would have moved the lighthouse more to the left cropping more of the road and evening up the rule of thirds.
L1M1AP3: Viewpoint, ISO360, F5.6, 1/125. I found this task very interesting in regards to perspective. The 3 different angles of the same subject were incredibly different. This image is from below and was my favourite due to the light coming through from the sky above and the purple parts of the leaves being very visible. In the front on view it was mainly the green leaves you could see. The top view made the plant appear to look as if it only had 4 leaves.
