Facebook Pixel Weekly Photography Challenge – Window Light

Weekly Photography Challenge – Window Light

Since many of us are still limited to where we can go, this week’s photography challenge topic is the WINDOW LIGHT!

Window light is the way that the sunlight comes through a window or glass door and creates interesting light-play on walls, floors and other surfaces. It creates shadows, it can sometimes create colors. Anyway, get your cameras out and capture the way the light falls through your windows.

You can also play with them in post-processing if you like – make them black and white, or boost contrast. The possibilities are endless.

I look forward to seeing your shots!

Morning sunlight streams through my front glass door, which has an ornate metal pattern. It creates interesting shapes in the shadow on the wood paneling. I decided to boost the contrast and make this one black and white too. © Caz Nowaczyk
