This set of photographs is the second part of a photo session I worked on last month. Check out the first set here, where I added a figurative element. These images were taken during the golden hour to sunset. I wanted to portray the different shades of light during the progression of the sun setting, while capturing the beautiful architectural elements of the pier. This day was beautiful and I was joined by other eager photographers.
The lighting was bright when the sun started setting. I decided to make this image a softer black and white image to capture the beautiful 'whites' of the light.
This image was captured closer to the golden hour (aka magic hour). The daylight was a lot softer.
The sun light was beginning to elude but there was still some luminous lighting. I transformed this image to a deep rich black and white image to capture the essence of the dark areas of night while illustrating the fading light.
Overall, this was such a creative photo project and collaboration that made me appreciate light even more in photography work. My creativity ignited even more during editing, since I was able to see how different my photographs were due to the change in the sunlight.
