Video Corner #147: Using a Large Light Source

Every Monday and Thursday, we post up a photography or Photoshop video in a column we simple call “Video Corner.” On Monday’s we get Photoshop-related videos, and on Thursday, we do photography-related videos. The ‘Photography Thursday’ Video Corner today (a super short one) looks at using a large light source (like sunlight bouncing off of a white wall) to create simple, yet effective, lighting that adds depth and definition to your photographs.

Video Corner #119: Controlled Viewing Conditions

Two weeks ago, in our continuing look at DIY Photography in our ‘Photography Monday’ Video Corner videos, we learned about monitors & calibration. Last week, we learned about “Delta E Tolerance” - what it is and how to test your tolerance with the Pilot Color Tolerance Exercise (you can see that video here). This week we look at “soft proofing” with controlled viewing conditions. If you only take one thing away from this particular video, pay close attention to how the different light temperatures can make such a huge difference on how your photographs look (starting around the 0:55 mark). Now imagine what impact different lighting can have when you’re actually taking photographs!! Something to think about before using those cheap Wal-Mart lights again…

Video Corner #95: The Daylight Studio

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s starting to get a lot warmer outside, and today’s ‘Photography Thursday’ Video Corner shows us how to create a classic studio portrait in any outdoor location using the Sun as the only light source. To shape the light, the photographer in the video simply uses a Matthew’s 6×6 diffusion panel, a muslin background (with a couple of light stands to support it), and a couple of plexiglass mirrors to reflect the sunlight onto the subjects hair for back-lighting.

Articles By Amy: Glamour Photography Fixes

When we think of “glamour photography” we might think of elegant ladies in black and white photographs, or we could envision tasteful or artistic nudes, and we might even think of those photographs that put “ordinary” people in place of traditional “models” with makeup, lighting and expensive clothing.

The essence of glamour photography, however, is that it is never candid or casual. This means that it uses optimal conditions for recording very finely crafted photographs. Is it always perfect? Nope! There are, however, some editing tools that can really improve the overall appearance of such images.

Articles By Amy: Lenses, Lighting and Portrait Photography

There are few people who haven’t done even the most basic portrait photography. How is that possible? Because every camera owner usually ends up taking a group photograph, or capturing a friend or family member in a “picture”, meaning they have taken a portrait. The differences between such casual images and formal portrait photography may seem numerous, but in fact are really only a matter of setting and attention to detail.

Articles By Amy: Photography Lighting Tips

Articles By Amy: Photography Lighting TipsMost people know that lighting is the key in most photographs. If a scene is under lit the subjects are lost; too much light and the scene is washed out; unbalanced light and the effects are lost – most photographs can be greatly affected by light.

How does a photographer adjust lighting? There is equipment as well as techniques that photographers use to address difficulties or issues with lighting in a scene or of a subject.
