Shadows and High Contrast Photography in Cuba

Photo Feature by Reynaldo La O

HAVANA TIMES – For most beginners in photography its often quite uncomfortable to obtain snapshots with low light source, whether natural or artificial.

However, with an optimum adjustment of the camera and using the little that the environment that surrounds you provides, even backlit, you can achieve amazing photos and avoid unnecessary diffuse movements within the frame.

In this future I share with you a small exercise in which, using low reference light, natural in all cases, I achieved striking images with a high value between shadows and contrasts.

To cite an example …
