Daybreak in the Pasture, 8 x 10
My favorite part of the day--when the sun has just come up and you're grabbing that first, precious cup of coffee, and things are still quiet--even outside. To be honest, I had a bit of a challenge photographing this with so many greens--the dark ones are definitely the least cooperative. I can't ever seem to get a away from this issue, even if I change the time of day, direction the painting is facing (I take all my photos outside). Anyone have any suggestions on this topic of outdoor photography? Other than setting up lights, etc. indoors? I'd love to hear them. I take my photos usually after 5 or 6 o'clock, and set my work upright against an east-facing wall in my backyard. Is it all just trial and error?
