Blog Circle: Broad Lighting | Cold Spring, MN Photographer

Its been a little while since I’ve been active with my blog circle.  I’ve been in a little photography funk lately, the why is a long story, but I’m hopefully moving past it.  I haven’t even picked up my camera in a long time, but last week I did for a little macro shooting for myself and last night my daughter let me take some pictures of her to demonstrate a photo technique called broad lighting.  I rarely use my flash so I wanted to practice some with it.  Broad lighting is basically lighting the area of the subject that is closest to the camera, while leaving the other side in shadow.  These images were all taken using my 50 1.4, my sb700 flash set up to camera left with a trigger set, and a shoot through umbrella to diffuse the light from the flash.  Please follow the circle around to see how my fellow photographers demonstrate the use of broad light on their own subjects.  Begin here with the talented Emily Morgalis.
