Photography 101: Warmth

Another assignment crosses my path. I look and read and breathe a sigh of relief, I can do a landscape shot. They are my favourite. Today is about warmth… from the sun.

Today, head outside and capture an image of warmth, using the sun as your source. And if the sun is nowhere to be found, don’t worry! You can interpret warmth in a different way.

Being a worker I cannot just pop out and take a picture of warmth, besides it was raining today so no luck there.  I do however have another shot from South Australia – the subject of my affections – Glenelg Jetty again!

This is a shot taken of the setting sun reflecting light on the side of the Jetty.

When we first arrived in South Australia – Adelaide to be exact, we missed the sun by about 10 minutes due to an automatic hire car that I didn’t quite have in the right gear so after about 15 minutes of going around and around the roundabout then heading back to the hire company we finally were on our way with the car firmly in the right gear.  I was a bit upset at missing it but then realised that I could go back again after my conference had finished so felt better.

Finally the day came and I headed out early in excited anticipation.  I went so early I had to have dinner to fill in the time before the actual sunset.  It was well worth the effort.  I had a great time in the magic hour photographing the pier ad nauseum, a post of this jetty I have yet to blog.

Anyway here is finally my photo of Glenelg Jetty at sunset.  I like the warm glow it casts on the side of the jetty.

  1. Love this photo. How did you make the bridge look a little out of the ordinary?

    • Thanks M very much. I did have it on a tripod with a slow shutter speed 1/6 sec. Other than that the sun was reflecting on the side of the jetty. Maybe someone may have been walking on the top to give a bit of a blur but I cant remember if this shot had someone in it or not, just a thought. I used a Sigma wide angle lens 10-20mm which may have changed the perspective a bit. Hope this helps 🙂
