Phone light­ing

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

You don’t nec­es­sar­ily need to use ex­pen­sive LEDs or flashes for night-time por­traits. The beauty is that we don’t need a high out­put of light be­cause we need to bal­ance the light we add to our sub­ject with the ex­ist­ing light in our scene. Even a phone torch can be use­ful! It can add wel­come il­lu­mi­na­tion to the sub­ject and also cre­ates lit­tle catch­lights in their eyes. The main prob­lem is the colour of the light from a phone torch, which is usu­ally quite cold com­pared to the sur­round­ings, which of­ten have a much warmer colour tem­per­a­ture.
