What a difference light makes

For two weeks now I'm working on adaptation of my atelier, so instead of going out for (photo)walks, I'm spending my days sawing, building, painting and cleaning. The only moments stolen for photography are at my desk, while I check my e-mails and respond to the most urgent ones.

So I set on photographing the same subject - doors to my terrace - from the same spot for a few days, recording the difference that the time of day and variance of light might bring.
It's not super thorough, like fixing the camera on a tripod to assure the exact same composition, but it's close enough... And the results, at least to me, are quite interesting.

All shot with Fuji XE2 and Takumar 55mm f1.8

Reminds me of my first steps in photography when I did such a series outside with a Kodak Instamatic 250. Long time ago (mid-60s).

This is very good exercise for every photographer to do, at least once to learn the importance of the light. It is actually a bit shame that nowadays one can cheat in PP so easily :)
