Part Four: Light

I read through the text for this unit before going on holiday as I hoped that there might be some good photo opportunities that fitted with the exercises whilst I was in Florence and Sorrento, which there was.  A roof top terrace at our hotel in Florence provided excellent views of the Duomo and the Florentine rooftops and a balcony at our Sorrento hotel, overlooking the bay of Naples, with views of Vesuvius in one direction and the island of Ischia in the other ,enabled me to take the same photographs at different times of day, in different lights and using different camera settings.  I took as small portable tripod with me as well as my remoter shutter release, which was perfect for long exposures. Of course this meant that some of the work for this unit has been undertaken out of sequence, so I may not have followed the logical sequence of learning but these were opportunities not to be missed.


About Anne Bryson

I live in Gloucestershire with my husband Iain and West Highland Terrier, Isla. I enjoy golf, photography and my grandchildren, not necessarily in that order! Having completed a 10 week digital photography course with the Open University in 2010, I decided I wanted to take my photography further and enrolled for the Open College of the Arts BA (Hons) starting with 'The Art of Photography' which I enjoyed so much that I went gone on to do Digital Photographic Practice and People and Place. In April 2016 I enrolled on my fourth OCA photography course, Documentary. This blog is my Learning Log for this course.
