Good lighting is one of the most important factors which determines the quality of a photo. Therefore, it is important to take it into consideration before and while capturing a photo. Whether you are taking a photo of a bunch of flowers in a vase or are taking a photo of a newly wedded couple coming out of the venue, make sure not to neglect the lighting because regardless of the situation it is important.
Even if it is a simple photo in the garden of your house in the bright sunlight you will still have to position the people or the things that are being photographed properly. For an example, if you make the person who is posing stand under the shade of a tree when it is very bright outside the photo might not come out as expected if you don’t position the person well in a way the correct amount of light falls on him or her. And if you are capturing flowers or butterflies and other living creatures in your garden, the day time would be the best rather than the evening or night time when it is dark. But, this depends since professional photographers have great skills in taking photos even under tough situations and they can even make a simple flower fallen on grass look beautiful and artistic. Lighting should not be too harsh since the people posing for the photo might start to squint or close their eyes which might lead to an unsuccessful capture. As an example, if the lighting is too harsh in a wedding photo shoot the outcome of the shoot will not look as joyful as you expect it to be initially. Hence, lighting has a direct effect on the people it is being used on.
It is always wise to use a broad light source since it makes the lighting look subtle and more natural than a narrow light source. In terms of natural lighting studies have found that it is usually better to take photos under a clear sky rather than a clouded one since the latter tends to distribute lights in various places. In professional photography additional equipment such as reflectors are used in order to collect the light and distribute it in the desired manner in order to make the most of the lighting source.Lighting is a very important factor that helps to capture beautiful and unique photos. Hence, apart from using the best equipment make sure to consider about the source of lighting as well.
