In the attempt to compose photographs with an emphasis on scale, one thing that is often overlooked is lighting—a mistake that must be corrected, for light and scale are inextricably linked to one another. Even on overcast days, whether illuminating an object in the foreground or in the distance, the ways in which light interacts with a scene brings greater depth.
One of my favorite aspects about light is how it can dramatically change the same scene. The soft light of overcast days evoke mystery and mood whereas the golden light of a sunset brings about a joyful vibrance. No matter the weather, how light interacts with the scenes we encounter.
