When it comes to photography light is the most important thing – hands down! It doesn’t matter if you shoot with a $300 Rebel or a $45,000 Hasselblad, if you can’t properly light something you’re in a world of trouble.
With that being said, there’s also a difference between good light and bad light. In the video above, I used three separate exposures to get the light exactly how I want it. In the first frame I’m lighting the entire room but it’s relatively flat. In the other two frames (where I’m visible) I’m changing the direction of the light to add highlights and shadows which create depth.
