The Sweet Spots

As a photographer, I've come to learn what it takes to take good pictures no matter my weapon of choice. Rather it be with my phone or the most technical camera, one thing will always play a big factor on how the pictures come out. Lighting my friends is the secret recipe. I myself prefer natural light; I can never do wrong under the Sun. But, there are times we don't have access to that kind lighting so we make best of what we have. I'm the type of artist that makes little check marks in my head on different locations as I'm driving or walking by some spots with dope lightings. The pictures you are about to see came from how I made use of some of those sweet spots.

The pictures up top are from signage lighting (as it clearly says under them) and you can use them in so many different ways. Now have you ever drove by a bank after its closed and noticed how bright the drive-thru lights were, I know I have. There this one particular bank, its on Raritan Rd in Roselle, its right before you hit the Parkway. That bad boy shines so bright like a diamond (sorry Rihanna) at night and every time I drive by I'm always aching to go shoot under that light. Well, I recently did and the pictures are below.

And as a bonus the ATM was just as LIT

Now the moral of this folks is that you can always create some magic under any kind of light, just as long you have some. One of the best times to use either signages or light poles lighting is when its foggy out, you can actually do no wrong under those circumstances. So go out, take out your phones or camera and snap or shutter away.

Peace to the guac.
