As a photographer, you need to understand that light is relative. It’s that simple. Wait? What do you mean simple? What do you mean wait? A lot of photographers spend a lot of time figuring out that light is relative. I am embarrassed at the number of photographers who think you need multiple high power studio lights […]

Have you ever looked at an image or movie, and then wondered how many people are there really there when several are the same person? That is a little of what we will cover today: multiple exposure.

Have you ever been in a night club and everything just glowed really bright from the black lights? Have you ever thought about doing photographs with a similar effect on people or another subject?

Muslin and fabric backgrounds are something that all photographers eventually end up purchasing in a studio environment.

Everyone hears that they need many lights and a whole lot of light modifiers from soft boxes, barn doors, gel holders, and a lot of other things to be a good photographer.

We have covered quite a bit in this series of entries. In this entry, we will cover one more way of softening your flash or making it less obtrusive and then we cover something that is the meat of using a flash. One more way to make flash less obnoxious is through filter gels. Two […]
