Photography has been a popular sport for years, and more people can afford to take up the hobby because technology is making cameras more affordable with better features. It gives the photographer a great sense of accomplishment to take an amazing photo, and those photos can look even better with the right lighting. Lighting is important to all types of entertainment mediums, even shows and movies like what you see on http://www.cabletelevision.net/directv/.
Sunlight is still one of the best light sources available. If possible, try to move some of the subjects outside where the natural light can be used to the advantage of the photographer. There are plenty of sources for shading and secondary light once the process has moved outdoors. If going outside is not an option, the subjects could be positioned near a window so the light could be effectively used in that manner.
Light sources can be softened with the use of fabric or plastic to diffuse the light. The diffuser will help to scatter the light and make shadows less distinct. Bouncing light off another surface such as aluminum or a white wall will also soften and diffuse the light.
Distance of the light from the subject can also make a profound effect on the outcome of the photo. The farther the light is from the subject, the less pronounced the difference between light and dark becomes. This technique can be used to soften wrinkles, or the light source can be moved closer to show contrast and angularity. Shadows can be used to create volume, so different light placements and distances can assist with creating this illusion. Backlighting can be used to produce an extreme form of shadowing.
Various lighting techniques can be used to accentuate different features of the subject matter. Two point lighting is useful for adding a backlit effect to a subject while also highlighting a feature in the front. Three point lighting can be utilized to eliminate or control any shadows that the photographer may want to keep or hide. Four point lighting is a technique that utilizes a background light to illuminate things such as walls or scenery that may have gotten lost using a two or three point system.
