Seeing the Light
Part 6: Infrared
Early afternoon in July; the sun is high in the sky, bright and strong. Happy Hour won’t be for another six or seven hours. With these long days of mid-summer, if I’m to expose later using the twilight that will linger in the sky out over the Bristol Channel after sunset, I’ll be on duty until well after 11pm, and up again with the lark before 4am. So why on earth am I out on a shoot now under this high, hard, harsh, unappealing light of day? Normally this is the hour for either scouting locations or stacking a few ZZZs, but now, here on Exmoor, I’m hanging around waiting for light I won’t even be able to see.
