Photography and commentary from John Fujimagari

McDougall Church

McDougall Church Midday

In this image of the McDougall Church, I too a more standard approach. I’m fairly close with a wide angle lens. I placed the sun behind the steeple to reduce the contrast in the scene.

You can see the the shadow no longer is very contrasty but the color is much better in both the highlight and shadow areas. When you are shooting around midday, you have to do something to control the bright sun light.

In the best light…
