Malevolent lack of proper light

When taking a photograph the mood you try to present is either enhanced or destroyed by your ability to set the proper intensity of light, according to Tim the Boudoir photographer Manchester.

A new photographer may have bought an expensive camera, tripods, some “kickers” a small light to provide additional and softer lighting to the off side of the object being photographed- and may be several lens caps, however if there is poor lighting the results will be seriously affected and he better learns how to use Photoshop to conceal some of the defects.

When composing in studio the rule of “Three points of light”– Main Light + Filling light + Hair Light– is absolutely essential.

The Hair Light has to be placed behind the object/person to be shot and, it basically gives emphasis to the upper sides (that is why is called “hair light”), it clearly separates the background from the foreground.

The Main Light is the bright light, the most intense light out of the three. Its position is off centre and 5 to 10 centimeter above eye level. The distance of the Main Light can be adjusted closer or further away from the subject to regulate the shadows you want to expose or hide.

The Filling Light, or Low Key Light, has to be placed at exactly the opposite direction of the Main Light and its intensity should be in a ratio of 4:1 of the Main Light.
