Step-by-Step Lighting for Outdoor Portrait Photography: Simple Lessons for Quick Learning and Easy Reference

Jeff Smith

Step-by-Step Lighting for Outdoor Portrait Photography: Simple Lessons for Quick Learning and Easy Reference by Jeff SmithThere are many aspects to professional photography: composition, camera angles, exposure, color balance, posing, and lighting— just to name a few. However, while each of these aspects of photography is important in the creation of a professional portrait, lighting presents a special challenge that is part art and part science. When the two come together effectively, the results are stunning; when any one aspect of the recipe falls short, the result is a poor exposure or a downright unflattering look.
On the artistic side of the scale, lighting is one of the primary tools for setting the mood...

Shaping Light: Use Light Modifiers to Create Amazing Studio and Location Photographs

Glenn Rand & Tim Meyer

Shaping Light: Use Light Modifiers to Create Amazing Studio and Location Photographs by Glenn Rand & Tim MeyerWhether shooting portraits or products, skillful lighting can be the difference between a bland snapshot and a stunning, well-defined image. Capturing the ideal photograph requires many technical factors to work in tandem, the most fundamental of which is lighting. While we may take it for granted that light is required to create a photograph, light by itself usually does not produce the style, energy, emotion or feeling that makes a photograph exceptional. It is the way the light has been modified and shaped that gives the photographer the ability to create an image that communicates their...
