Single light photography

Single light photography

Single light photography.

My most valuable learning experience was working as a photographer’s assistant back in the late 80’s, while starting my professional photography career.
One of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned was using a single light source to set up an atmosphere.

In  nature we have only a single main light source (sun), the human brain is completely happy and can easily make sense of a scene that has a single light direction. practicing this method in the studio helped me advance and master this technique in the studio as well as out on location.
