Into the Sun

(click on image to view larger)

Shooting directly into the sun is one of my favourite angles. It reduces the component parts of an image to shadows and blocks, sometimes giving a very evocative and graphic image. This was taken on transparency film, and I suspect many younger people will now be wondering what that is! I probably wouldn't have retained the detail in the sky around the sun had I shot digital or I would have had to do HDR and worked long into the night to process the image. As it was, I just shot the image, sent the film to be processed and that was it. Ah, those were the days! Shoot and hand over the transparency to the client, end of job.
