Why fight it?

Why fight it?

Why should one fight a challenging situation? Rather working with it, one can capitalize to an advantage.

 

At Tawang Monastery, watching a group of Monks dance, photographically it created a challenging situation. The camera was directly facing the setting sun, creating dark silhouettes.

 

So I decided not to fight but make the situation work for me. Dropping the exposure compensation on the camera, way down! Minus two to be precise, I was able to create this series of “Dancing Monks in Silhouette”.

    I think that was a simply a great thought to have reduced the exposure compensation. Somehow the silhouettes speak more than the human faces, that could be because things are left to one’s imagination and imagination always speaks a ton!
    I felt the last one is particularly powerful.

    Fascinating. Silhouettes somehow leave a lot more to the imagination than clear image. Rather like reading a book vs. watching a movie.
