In Pursuit of the Brass Dog

Sam and Mack furiously drove their 1956 Dunlop van through the streets in pursuit of the brass dog that had so long evaded their grasp. And here it was again, so close. But as soon as they turned the corner it was gone.

See behind the scenes below:
* 1956 Lesney Matchbox No.25 Dunlop Van
* 1950's brass dog from China
* One cityscape
* LED micro bulbs stuffed in the van.

It's time to look at things from a photon's point of view so make sure that your shot this week is done with One Light Source. I'm talking directional light - your subject ought to be lit by light coming from a single source - think speedlight or a shaft of sunlight coming through half drawn curtains. It's the light source and direction that you need to think of first, before you set up your subject and decide on a composition. Even though the sun is a single light source (for photographic purposes), broad daylight and a well-lit scene isn't the aim here - it's to add depth and dimension by demonstrating the interplay of light and shadow. This challenge is all about reminding ourselves of what it takes to paint with light - directional light need not be a harsh burst to produce sharp shadows. You can arrange for soft light to come through for a more pleasing look as well. Portraiture, Macros, Food Photography, Still Life and even Street Photography lend themselves quite well to this week's concept. Look to place light at angles you'd normally not think of - a full side profile or light streaming down from a bare bulb on the ceiling, maybe a night shot illuminated by a neon sign or the perennial favourite of Silhouette Photography - it's time to be creative and play with the light.
