Our Ap­pren­tice says… I started the day out with Chris at Loch Cill Chriosd. The day was an un­usual one for the Isle of Skye be­cause there were no clouds in the sky – at all! It was 2pm and Chris told me, “We have a com­bi­na­tion of two prob­lems to over­come: the over­head sun and the fact it’s di­rect light. Cloud will dis­trib­ute the light rays and pro­duce soft shad­ows, but with the di­rect sun we have to ac­com­mo­date for bright high­lights and deep shad­ows in one im­age.” I saw that the reeds were a great way to make use of this high-con­trast scene, as they were bright yel­low against the deep blue – al­most black – wa­ter. Chris told me to use my Calumet car­bon fi­bre tri­pod for al­most all of my land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy, even in bright sun­light, as it aids com­po­si­tion as well as elim­i­nates cam­era shake.
