If you break down the word ‘photography’, it literally means “light – writing.” While technological advances have changed since it was first named, the original meaning still gives me all of the feels.
Light absolutely matters! Its a topic often discussed in the photography world regardless of your level of expertise. I believe one of the most common hurdles to overcome is how to use your light. Be it natural light or studio light. While I may not be the most profound expert on the matter I do understand that it is a key factor for creating a successful image. Brightness and darkness are determinations of light, it helps set the mood of the image. Hence why it’s imperative to know correct control and manipulation of it, getting your image the best texture, colour vibrancy and luminosity.
Please note, Im not an instructor and don’t claim to be one but I do hope this helps my clients understand why I choose specific times of day particularly when shooting outdoors and then when shooting indoors in the studio for specifically styled genre’s.
