Photography is all about light. You can take the same composition many times over, and will look different depending on the light – time of day, time of year, weather – all of these elements impact on the tone, colours and atmosphere of your image.
The Grand Mosque in Muscat provides a strong lesson in thinking about light. Its long straight corridors, multiple columns, intricate detail, shiny floors; its beauty inside and outside; all provide numerous ways to make an interesting image. The light provides warmth, colour and detail, the dark adds a sense of mystery.
