Essential Photography Tips
Make best use of available light with a sheet of paper
If you can t afford studio lights, even out harsh contrasts when shooting with natural light by positioning a large sheet of paper or card to reflect the incoming light onto the unlit side of your subject. If shooting people, ask them to hold the card themselves outside of the framed shot. Alternatively, invest in a set of reflectors. You can pick up a new, multi part set with white, silver and gold reflective surfaces for around ?12 on eBay.This shot would have benefitted from a reflective surface positioned to the left of the frame to illuminate the right hand side of our subject s face.
