Photography and commentary from John Fujimagari

Move It


McDougall Sky

The 2 previous posts, Go Wide and McDougall Church were both shot in the early afternoon, creating very different looking images from these which were photographed in the early evening.

All three images were shot within twenty minutes of each other.

McDougall Mood

By moving your camera position in relation to the subject, you change your background. While you are doing that the angle of the light also changes. The top image has fairly even light with large well lit clouds. By swinging around to the left, we have created a back lighting situation. The clouds get more dramatic and the contrast increases.

McDougall Church Afternoon

I was back to the car when the sun came out from behind the clouds. I was able to frame the church in front of a patch of blue sky with strong side lighting throwing warm light across the church.

So, by moving around the building in a little over a ninety degree arc, varying the distance to the church and waiting out or choosing some differing lighting, I now have 3 views of the McDougall Church each with a unique look and mood.

In the best light…
