Shoot a photo that considers shapes and lines.


I’m always looking for ways harsh sunlight can add to a composition. In this case, the sunlight pouring into the all-glass storefront made for defined lines/shapes of contrast along the walls, which added to the pops of color in the furniture and decor. I used to always opt for golden hour or shaded locations, because they were the “optimal times/areas to shoot.” If I’d kept that up, I would’ve missed opportunities like these. If these two photos were shot on an overcast day, they’d still be ok photos, but would lack that extra punch.
