Light it up

NPhoto - - The Photo Apprentice -

If the weather isn’t with you, you don’t have large win­dows or you want to shoot at night, then use a stu­dio light (or a Speed­light). Move the light off-cam­era – to do this you should have a light that’s ca­pa­ble of be­ing trig­gered by a hot­shoe-mounted wire­less trans­mit­ter (see pages 42 and 50 for more on this). Cheap wire­less trig­gers can be bought for £15/$35. Use a soft­box or um­brella to soften the light. A stu­dio light will also have a mod­el­ling lamp, which en­ables you to fo­cus easily, and also shows how the light will fall on your sub­ject, so you can preview the ef­fect of any changes.
