I am really lazy!
Before I go to bed I have all these fantastic ideas of how I will get up long before sunrise so that I can head to some fantastic location to capture a perfect sunrise. The only problem is, I can’t get my lazy backside out of bed in the morning and with sunrise currently set at around 6:15AM, and a five o’clock alarm call is enough to send shivers down the spine of any budding photographer. Today was no exception and even though my eyes sprang open long before the sun crested the horizon I still struggled to make it out of the door before a more respectable time registered on my clock.
The reason I have been hankering an early morning call is the prospect of capturing some silhouettes against the majestic colours of dawn; this was a subject we covered last week during my Exposure: Understanding Light course and being a fan of this type of imagery I have been keen to give it a go.
