In this challenge the key points to remember are:

Camera settings: using the correct camera modes either on your DSLRs or Compact camera.

 

Light: Also think about the light: how it will affect your subject and the best ways to use the light to get your perfect picture.

 

Some examples of images that use light creatively are:

 

Neil’s photograph of the Bakery, he only used the available light to take the photograph. 

 

Alan’s photograph of the inside of the Church and the bluebell field.
