3. A WHITE WALL

We’ve all seen this in real life. Maybe you haven’t recognized it, but if you start looking around you’ll probably start seeing it everywhere. The sun shines onto a white wall and bounces light back into the shadows creating extremely beautiful light. In any city’s downtown you will sometimes see the sun bouncing off of one building’s glass façade and onto another, creating multiple shadows across the sidewalk as people walk through two or sometimes three beams of light at once. When I was photographing marathon runners, I would always seek out this type of lighting because it was absolutely magical.
