And a good shot has not to be perfect to be a good one. But I will go back to that last statement later in an other post.
In my two previous posts I have written about how to use the natural light as a perfect softbox.
But, winter is coming and the days go shorten with it. So as it is already dark at 6pm (and this is the time when I leave my office), how am I suppose to shoot then ? hum…
But here is the thing, you also cam make great shot with very cheap lights. Do you see the pic above ? It was shot with a 5€ bulb bought in a DIY-shop.
It is very important to use a light meter so you can control your exposure.
As the light is not strong, the fall off is very quick. But you can use this create drama like in this one.
I think it is obvious where the bulb was.
But you also can use a bulb for your background :
