Where did you learn about light?
It’s simply from observation. I’m certainly no master of light, but understanding it comes from looking at photographs and trying to see where the light comes from. From looking at Renaissance paintings and their light sources, from seeing how the sun comes through a window and how it reacts throughout the day. If you can then apply that in relation to how a camera works you can make light work for you
Hello, What would you say are some basic rules for editing a picture instead of using preset filters? I always see people's pictures and their edits look so clean. Thanks!
Well, this a rather tough question to answer without going into great depth, but there are no rules really, it all depends on what you’re looking for as a final product. My workflow is fairly simple, I get the best image I can in camera and then do minor color correction in post along with adjusting some levels and curves, and that’s about it. I know some people make layers and layers of adjustments, tweaking every little detail, which is fine too. Good light goes a really long way when it comes to a good photo. As the old saying goes, you can’t polish a turd.
