Inverse Square Law of Light is something we all hear and know about, but don't always know how it really affects our photography. We always hear the math and the science behind it, but there is nothing like seeing it in a visual way to fully understand it. For people like me who find it hard to deal with math equations, those 2 great videos by photographer Karl Taylor will show you the important basics about the law you should know.
Inverse Square Law of Light is basically the intensity of light radiating from a light source (strobe, flash, hot light etc) and how the intensity of the light is (inversely) proportional to the square of the distance from the light source. Yes, this may sound like something only scientists need to know, but it is very important for any of us to learn and know. Understanding the concept can really change the way you see light and how you set up your shots in order to produce better photos.
The videos above and below are just quick educational videos covering the basics of the law in a visual way. In the near future we'll be posting some in-depth tutorials about the topic.
