Canon 5D/7D San Miguel de Allende Diaries Post #5

Day #3 here in San Miguel de Allende is coming to close - for me, anyway. We shot all day and we are burnt.

Continuing our theme of shadows, we photographed this woman tonight in the light of a streetlight. Remember: there is always enough light for a picture, as long as you have a tripod.

Personally, I am not big on photographing poverty. But I took this picture because the woman's face is hidden in the shadows.

I think the shadows on the yellow part of the wall add to drama of this photograph.

Remember: Light Illuminates, shadows define.

ISO 2000, Canon 5D Mark II, 24-105mm IS lens.

Explore the Light,

This image has a feeling like it could have been photographed in an Arabic country as well as Mexico. Also it looks like it could be 100 years earlier. I'm glad you took it and shared it. Dave
