Last week I was at sea. The heat, at least 40º Celsius, was bearable with the constant wind across the ocean. Back on terra firma, in Sharm El Sheik, it was windless calm and the heat really beat down.
I was shooting all the time and these two images I exposed for the subjects, however the intense sun really blew out – well, just a little thanks to Monochrom – the backgrounds. It occurred to me this could really work in my favour to convey a sense of the intensity of the heat.
Does anyone else agree?
