#30dayphoto : Day 27


Day 27: Natural Light. I pretty much only shoot with natural light. I really admire those that can handle studio and artificial lighting well. I am not one of those people. What do you prefer?

    I also shoot almost entirely with natural light. It’s what’s usually most readily available, and also I tend to shoot nature/landscape which sort of rules out studio lighting. Even when I shoot portraits, I prefer natural lighting because the color tones are so much more beautiful, in my opinion.

    i have to use artificial lighting for some things (weddings in dark churches, etc.) but when i do, it seems that i am always conniving to make the flash look like natural light because that is what i GREATLY prefer the look of.

    i was sad that i missed the deadline on submitting for this one since it’s the easiest one to complete!!

    i like off camera lighting in certain scenarios–but usually, i lean toward natural lighting. but i do like dramatic natural lighting.

    does any of this even make sense? i need sleep. lol.

    I agree with both of you! And yes, Candace…you always make sense to me.

      Thanks on #9! I also shoot mostly (I’m not a photographer) on natural light, but I was very lucky to take that picture and get than sunshine on the shot!
