Six Portrait Lighting Patterns Every Photographer Should Know

Shooting portraits is the best part of making images as I believe. The feel of portraits which give the exact definition about a person. In classical portraiture there are several things you need to control and think about to make a flattering portrait of your subjects, including lighting ratio, lighting pattern, facial view, and angle of view. If you you get to know these basics inside out, and as with most things, then you can break the rules. Lighting up for the studio, especially when you are doing portraiture, the most important part is the lighting which can also be tricky to get right almost instantly. But if you can handle the lighting part correctly, you can be sure to get some amazing results straight out of the camera.

All about professional lighting equipment

Photography is all about your ability to judge and use the light to your own advantage while taking pictures. Now when we say light, it does not only mean the light coming from the sun, the window etc . These sources occur in the nature and so they can be defined as natural continuous sources of light. But apart from these natural sources of light, we also have artificial lights. Artificial lights as you can guess already are man-made sources of light which can be used at any given point of time. These lights are compact in size when compared to their output, easy to pack and carry and allow a host of different attachments also known as 'Light modifiers' to attach and use. Artificial lights are in demand always and light manufacturing companies are putting out their best of the line lights out for the consumers.

Camera buying guide for professionals

We give out tips and techs articles on camera buying guides ever so often as the market keeps changing drastically every few months or so but for a professional photographer, the story is quite different. He or she invests in cameras that are high-end and do not change these cameras as often. The shelf life of these cameras are much more compared to the low-end models as newer versions are not made available as frequently. This is one of the main reasons why this camera buying guide will be drastically different compared to other ones we previously published.
