Red Barn in Morning Mist

When you ask a realtor what is the most important thing they will say" Location, Location, Location." When posing the same question to an outdoor photographer the answer might be "Time of day,Time of day, Time of day. "
The red barn seems to glow with the early morning light. The characteristics of light at this time of day are increased saturation and better detail. The human eye sees a contrast ratio of 10,000 to 1 where as film records 1,000 to 1 at best. What does this all mean? When what you are shooting looks high contrast to you it will be even higher in contrast when film records it. This is one of the reasons time of day is so important. Morning and evening light is much softer and forgiving than the rest of the day. The only exception to this is a cloudy day which produces soft light. LynnFreeny.com
