It’s Photo Fact Friday at NYIP! Every Friday afternoon, tune in right here on our photography blog for a new piece of advice from NYIP’s photography mentors, a team of successful photographers that works with our students to help them grow.
Here is today’s tip:
“If you want to take photos for fashion or product marketing purposes, it can be extremely helpful to get creative with your lighting choices.
For a super-hard lighting effect, some strobe units can be more narrowly focused to serve as your spotlights. You should also use a fill to soften those shadows (unless you want them to be very dark). For that, you can use a reflector floodlight, or an even more diffused source, such as light bounced into an umbrella. Don’t be afraid to get creative!”
