Chris Marquardt ... light is everywhere

Chris Marquardt

Chris is back to talk about lighting and photography. He's created a Flickr album of lighting examples here - https://flic.kr/y/3zY73e9.

Black and white helps when shooting in bright light. A single point of light can also make harsh shadows for an edgy image. A giant light source can also eliminate shadows. Overcasts skies act as a softbox in the sky, diffusing the light. Lights bouncing off a wall can also make a light source cover a larger area. Reflectors like a white sheet of foam core can reflect light to where you want it.

Reflections can also create detail, making an image more interesting. Interesting light is everywhere. 

Our next photo assignment is - NORMAL. Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "NORMAL" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "TGNORMAL" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
