How to Create Natural Light in Studio

It might seem strange to work in a studio only to use it to replicate the look of natural light, but it is a classic style that can be quite effective for a wide range of applications. This useful video tutorial will show you the technique behind creating the look as well as some helpful tips you can use to make it your own. 

Coming to you from Ian Hippolyte, this great video tutorial will show you how to create the look of natural light in your studio. The look of natural light is one even non-photographers recognize and intuitively respond to, and as such, knowing how to recreate it is a vital skill to have. And, of course, the beauty of knowing how to create it in studio is that you can shoot whenever you want instead of having to plan your shoots around the sun. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Hippolyte.
