The Beauty of Available Light

While I'm a big fan of the Strobist movement, sometimes the best light is the one that is available, whether it's beautiful sun light or the light coming from a lamp on the ceiling of a greasy spoon diner.

In the following two shots the different sources of light (big windows at the front end of the restaurant and plenty of artificial light inside)in this diner provided for some very interesting colors, which were further enhanced with Nik Color Efex Pro Film Effects.

Mars Restaurant - Just Out of the World

Mars Restaurant - Just Out of the World 2

Then there's always the beautiful light produced by the last rays of the sun before the sunset
Pool of Light

The Cold Walk Back Home

It must be Friday!

Those diner shots are so lovely. I'm a sucker for perfect available light. Those moments when you just HAVE to have your camera at your side.

Thanks for the comments on the diner shots, those are my favorite from the set. The funny part about that is that I was scouting that place for a photo shoot at a later date, using strobes, reflectors, the whole nine yards. It never materialized, as we found a better location later on.
