The Lion Sleeps Tonight

“Photography is actually the art of capturing the beauty of life, the act of appreciating ‘the moment” according to the Urban Dictionary. Light plays a major role in photography.

As an experiment with light, I decided to experiment with light by taking a photo of a lion in various places throughout the day.


As the sun rises, and in the early hours of the day, there is a lovely warmth to the light and the angle casts some lovely shadows.

Mid day the light is brightest or more intense. I had fun and played with the light in various places, including the woods.

By late afternoon, the world becomes golden. The shadows are long and can be used to form part of the photo.

Taking photos by artificial light can be interesting. Candles and lamps work better than flash in my opinion.

This was a fun weekend project and by using the same object to photograph in various lights, I can see how important the lighting is to the end result.

There is only one thing left to do… and that is sing….

♫ ♪ ♫ Wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh, wimoweh

In the jungle, the mighty jungle
The lion sleeps tonight…. ♫ ♪ ♫ ♫
