There’s a reason people can make a career out of being lighting experts. If you’re in any kind of film industry, whether it’s Hollywood, TV, or even a still photographer… the light projected onto your subject is so important to bring out the right ambiance, mood and of course, look of whatever you’re shooting. Too much light can sometimes accentuate flaws that can be concealed better in low light or shadows…. though as the photos I’m about to show you prove, that’s not always the case.
Take a good look at the squirrel in the picture up there. He looks like a fine, upstanding sciurine specimen… hale and hearty and looking up a tree maybe for some of those delicious green walnut balls. Looking good in the sunlight, right?
Now here’s the same squirrel moved slightly back into the shadows….
That’s a pretty big chunk the Wilson Park Squirrel Ear Mutilator took out of this poor guy’s ear! And you can hardly notice it at all in the sunny photo, while it sticks out like a sore thumb in the shadows! This week’s Saturday Squirrel definitely needs to stay in the light…
Have a great weekend everyone!
