Photography: Existing Light

Updated on January 18, 2010

I can't pinpoint what it is I like about this photo, but I just do. I took this indoors on my kitchen table using only existing light that was coming from the upper windows. The window on the wall directly next to the bamboo plant, which isn't shown in the photo had the blinds closed. So the light was coming mainly from above. I think maybe I like also how the lighting and lines from the blinds behind make for an interesting background for the photo. I love this little bamboo plant. It sits at the corner of my sink, so I'm around it much of the day. I'm not the best with plants, so I have much appeciation for the ones that stick with me!

      Nice photo cheryl... well i think the back ground color (the blinds) makes your photo looks cold and the light that comes from upper left side is like an ambient light that cast a soft shadow in front of the bamboo plant which make somewhat contrast and half expose... I like it very much.
