When you are new to artificial lighting, it can be a bit of a tough world to navigate. This great explores one of the most fundamental concepts behind working with artificial light and why it's so useful for photographers.
Coming to you from Daniel Norton with Adorama TV, this great video explores the use of large sources and why they're so beloved by many photographers. One of the most fundamental principles of light is that the larger the relative size of the source, the softer the light, and soft light is generally considered more flattering. There are two ways to change the relative size of the source: change the actual physical size of it or move it closer or farther away from the subject. This is why many photographers who work with people love shooting with large modifiers, as they provide flattering light easily and simply. But they're not just one trick ponies; by varying the distance to the subject or even adding a grid, you can do a lot to modify the output of whatever modifier you're working with and create a variety of different looks. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
