One big difference is that emitted light comes from a point source generally -- the filament of a lamp, or an LED, or the sun -- and reflected light, assuming a non-shiny surface, does not have a point source (unless it's a perfect reflection of a point light source, such as a lamp in a mirror). This can produce different types of shadow edges and different ...


Don't think of it as a light source, but as a shade source. There are, of course, reasons why a photographer might want to use an overhead light source, but your question didn't mention anything other than the panel. That leads me to believe that you are referring to location fashion, glamour and beach bunny shots of the sort that make their way into ...


Overcast photography is one of my favorite lighting. Being based in the Nordic we got plenty of overcast days. I wrote an blog post on the topic not long ago, I hope you'll enjoy it. anyone able to elaborate on ND filters and over cast days ?


You can get a result like this by creating a duplicate layer on Photoshop, and giving it a Gaussian Blur, then lowering the opacity of that layer. This gives the image a radiant glowing effect. Also, Joshua Cripps does a good tutorial on this effect. Hope this is the effect you're looking for


The "trick", if you want to call it that, is: Understanding how many stops each of your filters reduce the light entering your camera. Your ND2 filter allows 1/2 the light falling upon it through so it is a 1 stop filter. Your ND4 filter allows 1/4 the light through so it is a 2 stop filter. Your ND8 filter allows 1/8 the light through so it is a 3 stop ...


It all depends on the specific exposure you're trying to make. Generally when you're using an ND filter, it's because you're in a situation where the shutter speed and aperture setting combination you want to use will overexpose the shot. The key is to know how much that combination overexposes the shot, in stops (EV). If you look at the histogram of an ...


Neutral Density filters are used to reduce the light so that you can have a larger aperture, or slower (longer) shutter speed, and still have a properly exposed photo. ND2 equals a 1 stop reduction. ND4 equals a 2 stop reduction. ND8 equals a 3 stop reduction. Just use the filters alone or even combined together to get the type of exposure you want. ...
