MASTER THE LIGHT FOR DRAMATIC IMAGES
When we take photos, much of the time it is light that we are chiefly working with. Of course other factors count too, but if there’s no light, there’s no photo, for it’s light that we are actually capturing. If we can learn to master the light and use it to guide our compositions – and even our editing – then our chances of success will be so much greater. In our feature, Peter Eastway has put together a detailed guide to mastering the light, looking at how to utilise different types of light, from sidelight to backlight, and how to let this inform your framing choices. He also explores image processing considerations and provides his essential tips.
