Light painting is a popular technique used by photographers to make creative images that make viewers wonder, “How’d they do that?” While it isn’t necessarily difficult to get started in light painting, it does get increasingly challenging and more time consuming the more advanced you get.
Continuous lighting are great to use when taking portraits; there is no guess work when trying to determine what lighting pattern you’re setting up. Since the lights never go off, you can automatically see how the light will look in your photographs.
“If I just had a better camera, I could take better photos.” How often have you heard someone say something like this? While it is nice to have the latest and greatest photo gear, if you are relying on expensive cameras to make your photography better, you might be in for a surprise.
For many pro photographers, studio lights are an essential part of kit. As a portrait photographer, I can honestly say I’d never be without them. They allow you to control the light to a finite degree and open up endless creative possibilities.
There are countless light modifiers on the market designed for specific purposes. Photographer Andrea Belluso, however, goes outside the box and shows us how to be more creative with light-shaping tools.
When shooting outdoors, the sun often creates overly bright highlights and harsh shadows on the skin. A good portrait photographer knows just what to pull out of his camera bag to help him combat this commonly overlooked aspect of outdoor photo shoots.
The key to great studio photography is in well-planned and well-executed lighting. It not only creates dynamic portraits, but it can dictate the style, mood, and tone of a photograph.
