Photography 101 Day 10: Mystery and Lighting Effects

A photograph can create a certain mood and communicate an idea that transcends its subject.

Today, share an image that creates a sense of mystery.

Today’s Tip: To stretch yourself, manipulate the light available to you to create a particular effect — use it to cast shadows and highlights to create a moody image.

I captured this eerie photo as the sun was making its exit.  A silhouette of a lone rose captures a window with it’s lace curtains and  peeling paint.  For me, the mood here is quite ominous and it makes me wonder what kind of horrors lay beyond the dusty panes of glass…

    As I rolled up the screen to look at the photo, my first thought was it reminded me of Poe. You captured this one:)

    1. Love me some Poe! Thank you! 🙂
