Knowing Light - Introduction by photo-class Knowing Light - Introduction by photo-class
The first of a series of articles trying to get the notion of light on photography layered down.


Brief:

Light is one of the most important elements on a photograph, but it is often neglected, or ignored because of its apparent complexities.
In fact, light in photography is just a question of knowing what you want, and how to use what is available to achieve that very outcome.

Thank you so much! I never would have thought of using white bristol board as a reflector, but it makes sense.

'Photographers, do you know what your medium is? For the other forms of art, the answer to this question is easy: painters use paint, sketchers use pencils, and musicians use sound. But as a photographer, your medium is light.' I like it :p
