Available Light Available Light

There are huge advantages to shooting with natural or available light: it lets you shoot more spontaneously, it puts your portrait subjects at ease, and it makes it easier to see the relationships between highlights and shadows. Above all, working with natural light will get you to think on your feet and become a better photographer, because every time you shoot you'll be presented with a new lighting situation. This book will help you rise to each occasion and create outstanding images with natural light.

Quick Tips - Now let’s get this straight!

The problem is one we all face from time to time. A beautiful window, a memorial frieze, whatever – they are always too high! In the absence of a rising-front lens/camera, pointing the camera upwards, to get in all the view, results in key stoning. To cap it all, the shot is probably not level and you are not quite centred, so the left side is a different size to the right side! The shot would look so much better all squared off.
