Shoot out at High Noon (Solar)
Shot exactly at solar noon in Smyrna, GA, US. If you look carefully you can see the bullet in the air. FYI it is a NERF gun.
Yo! Here's a brand new challenge for you to explore your creative and technical sides - "High Noon". No, it doesn't have anything to do with horses and cowboys (unless you add them in). This challenge focuses on capturing the beauty of light and shadow during the time of day when the sun is at its highest point and the light is harshest. It's a great time of day for some high key work. Noon is often considered a difficult time for photography, as the light is intense and can result in harsh shadows and high contrast. Mind you, this also presents an opportunity to create unique and striking images. When taking photos at noon, it's important to pay attention to the direction of the light and the angle of the sun. For some added creativity, you could try shooting from an angle can produce interesting effects like lens flares and sunbursts, by changing your shooting angles and getting low.In addition to direction and angle, the color of the sky is also an important consideration. The deep blue sky during noon can provide a beautiful backdrop for your photos. To make the most of this, try to find a subject that will stand out against the blue sky and play with the shadows to add depth and interest to your image. Of course, if the weather remains uncooperative, then do your best to "simulate" the harsh overhead sun by setting up a lamp or flash directly above your subject. So, grab your camera and get ready to embrace the harsh light of high noon! Whether you're shooting portraits, landscapes, or still life, the goal of this challenge is to capture the beauty of light and shadow during one of the most challenging times of the day for photography.
