The Light in Vancouver

These last couple of weeks (when the sun made appearance) were particularly magical in terms of photo ops.  The low winter sun shines a light that creates long shadows, lots of contrast and beautiful colours.

This post is a response to all the over exposed, whitewashed imagery that seems to be so popular on Instagram.  It's beautiful, don't get me wrong. And I love it too.  But in exploring light, shadow, contrast and colour, you can expand your lighting horizons, and showcase the character and beauty that some might miss.

We have a few days left until Spring arrives, and the forecast calls for sun.  Seize the day and get out there and see the amazing light in Vancouver.  Chinatown and the Downtown Eastside are particularly inspiring this time of year.  If you're on Instagram, I'd love to see your shadow-filled, gritty, colourful and high contrast photos.  Something that lives outside the white, blush and gold girly aesthetic box.  Tag me on Instagram @kyrani.  I'd love to see it.
