Lessons in Lighting: extending natural light
When lighting it can be just as important to take into account the natural light in a scene, as well as how to position and make use of artificial light. For many situations, the natural light needs to be supplemented or extended. In this video, a 4 light setup is shown, using 3 x dedolight DLED 4 and a single Felloni. The results clearly show how the scene looks without any supplemental light, and with a complete lighting setup. It is the combination of natural light and the LED lights which makes this scene work. By using the right tools and learning a few simple techniques, you can dramatically improve the quality of your images.
