“Daylight Reflections. From Sunrise to Sunset” Harvey Kupferberg
Opening Reception: Friday, March 1, 6 – 8:30 pm
“Daylight Reflections” is a photographic illustration of the sun’s influence on its colorful reflection on earth’s landscape, specifically at sunrise and sunset.
Daylight photography starts early morning before the sun reaches the horizon. The sky is dark blue and the black of night has gone. The sky starts as a deep blue followed by a warm purple glow. Then colors changes to rich yellow-orange. As the sun rises in the morning sky landscape photography starts to end.
At mid-day, when the sun is at its highest, shadows disappear, and colors lose their saturation. Most landscape photographers start thinking about where continue photographing during late afternoon as the sun moves to the western sky. Shadows predominate dominate again and the sky becomes orange. As the sun gets closer to the horizon, the sky can become intense orange red. The sky continues to glow long after it sinks below the horizon.
This photographic exhibition is Kupferberg’s documentation of sunrise and sunset in diverse venues. They were taken over the last 20 plus years . His early photographs were taken using film cameras. The last 10 years he used digital cameras. All the photographs were digitally reproduced.
