Wow! It feels great to be back in the saddle in terms of blogging. And even more special is the fact that my first blog post for 2015 is with my favorite group of ladies, my blog circle with my fellow photographers. This year we are exploring various aspects of Light.
Light is such an integral part of any image. For a wedding and family photographer like myself, the quality, intensity and even the direction of light can make or break an image especially portraits. This month we are looking at ‘Broad Lighting’.
Broad Lighting is a lighting technique when a subject is positioned such that the main light is directed at the side of the face that is closest to the camera. Typically broad lighting is achieved when the subject is placed parallel to the light source and the subject is facing away from the camera at about a 45 degree angle. Here are some examples of broad lighting.
Follow along my talented friend Nadeen Flynn, a Landscape and Fine Art Photography’s blog to see her take on Broad Lighting.
