I thought I’d finally sorted out where I was going with assignment 2, certainly I have a good chunk of it written up and I’m happy (-ish) with 2 of the 3 elements. The final one isn’t quite there yet though, even if I did manage to get out and take some photographs the other night.
I’ve been wanting to continue with the theme of night lights for the colour accent, but I’m now finding the car lights to be generally too white - the effect just isn’t the same. The photograph I came away with is shown below:
Now, maybe I’d just left it a little too late, or maybe the composition is just too different (the car too close) but it’s got a very different feel to the first one I’d taken some months ago - here again...
I’m thinking (hoping?) it is the time of night, the background has gone from cool bluish shadows to being black, and the lights are no longer a “problem” in terms of cool and warm tones. Whatever, it doesn’t work in the way I had intended, even though I do feel a certain apprehension from both: something is coming... Which is the intention I had.
I guess I’ll try it again soon, otherwise it’s back to the drawing board for the third exercise to complete.
