As a photographer, one should know how to use the lighting effectively to take the pictures in the best way. In the case of outdoor photography, the natural lighting will help you in most of the time to take the best photos, but when it comes to the indoor photography, artificial lighting comes into the play. Here let’s see some different sources of lights in photography.
However natural light directly refers to the sunlight. When shooting the images in the outdoors like seashores, mountain areas or in any other areas, natural lighting itself will help you to take great pictures. Mostly artificial lighting is avoided in the outdoors unless when some pictures are taken in the night time. As a professional photographer, you should know to use the natural light in favor of you to take the best photos.
When there is a need to take professional shoots like model photography, product photography or any, then it is taken in the studio by using the artificial lighting setup. In the studio we can have the full control over the lights, we can move them where we want around the subject, make the light soft or harsh or even change the color of the light. The possibilities are literally endless when it comes to the studio lighting.
Studio lighting setup is must for the product photography shoots, where the product pictures should be taken in a way that it tempts the viewers to buy the product. Natural lighting won’t help in the case of product photo shoot, custom lighting setup is needed when it comes to the product photography.
Even some camera’s have flashes which will help you take best pictures in the dark condition or in the night time. As a photographer to take the pictures in the best way you should know to use the lighting and the angle in a different way. Try to capture images from different angles to take the pictures in a creative way, instead of shooting from the same angle.
