Learning the Finder Points of Illumination
Any photographer worth her of his lens cap knows a thing or two about light. To be considered in those ranks, all you need to do is master a few basics First, remember that the broader the light source, the softer the light it emits will be.
The narrower the source, The harder it's like will be Broad light reduces shadow in contrast and suppresses distracting texture because it's raising the subject from many directions ( which is why it's beloved for flattering portraits).
A corollary: closer that the light source is to the subject, the softer dislike will be, because a light source is brought in relation to the subject. The converse holds true as well as you shift the light away from the subject, speed narrows in the light that a cast is harsher and harder. Such light plays of texture (as well as flaws) of and is an excellent choice for greedy, moody photos.
Playing with Illumination:
Ask a portrait subject to suit your large window to make the most of it in direct sunlight. A window with a good light is a no-cost softbox.
Move lamps closer and farther away from subjects into you found the most flattering illumination.
Place a light sourced the side of fluffy pets to bring up the softness and texture are their fur.
Aim of your flash head backward that bounces it off appeal wall behind yourself for a natural looking diffusion when you shoot in a small room.
Till next time.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
I'm a photographer who loves animal photography. Trying to capture that perfect moment is a passion of mine.
