What are shadows in photography

With the white balance on the settingshadow the sky remains blue, as one would expect at the blue hour and the artificial light a bit reddish.

How to take your black and white photography to the next level
At that time it was still perceived as a limitation, today it has become a kind of cult: black and white photography. How does it differ from "normal" color photography? What makes it so exciting anyway?

If the light tent is on an opaque surface, no light can enter from below. As a result, depending on the design of the object to be photographed, it can be a light one despite the soft light ~litter come.

~Avoid edges when flashing

Why does the photo work so well?

[Also edge shading, vignetting] Most lenses depict the image edge darker than the center of the image - that is, the brightness is not shown evenly. How strong this edge~ is pronounced depends heavily on the construction of the lens.

With a clear blue sky, motifs in ~ there is no direct sunlight, but there is a lot of blue light from the sky. In order to avoid the resulting blue cast, this white balance setting corrects quite strongly in the direction of yellow / orange.

~ on the face can ruin a portrait photo. Therefore, pay attention to a balanced illumination of the face. You don't need expensive equipment for this. You can also use a styrofoam sheet as a side brightener, for example.

So that ~parts are gelled up, a highlight image can be used and it must be exposed more strongly with one or two exposure levels.
Spot measurements and the light measurement at 90 degrees to the direction of exposure usually give better measurement results.

Drowning (~)
If there is no longer any drawing in very dark areas of a photographic image, one speaks of the drowning ~. There is then no separation of the tonal values ​​within these dark image areas, so that they are displayed as a uniform black.

Since the light does not come from above, it reflects the colors of nature much more directly, almost horizontally back to the photographer. Another advantage of taking pictures in the morning or in the evening is the ~Effect: Throw trees and buildings ~that bring variety to the picture.

In the ~sharing the picture is naturally very developed. I.e. it will be in the ~ generates a lot of potassium bromide.
This slows down or even stops the development at the edges of the ~ while the lights are further developed and they completely `` drink up '' due to the strong second exposure.

Especially in bright light, a flash is often useful, if not necessary, to take beautiful photos without ugly ones ~ to achieve. From a technical point of view, this can be explained quite simply: A camera usually chooses an average value for the exposure, which is not always optimal for the end result.

Other areas, for example in the ~ of the trees turn out to be underexposed black. In fact, however, the sky was perceptible to human perception as blue, as can be seen in the HDR image.

With this constellation we get three different ones ~areas behind the object: As in the previous example with a single light source, we get a core again~ K; neither light from light source L1 nor light from light source L2 enters this area.

Just because you have the large dynamic range between ~ and direct sunlight in the digital image data, the problem of reproducing this dynamic range has not yet been solved.

Here it is possible, precisely ~- or to optimize light areas in the image or to make targeted corrections to the color values. However, as already mentioned, the change always relates to the complete picture.

A single flash or headlight (main light) leads to a very hard illumination with a pronounced impact~. Sometimes this high-contrast illumination is desired, but usually it has to ~ but to be lightened.

Recordings only in landscape format, that's that ~ "under" the person and not next to the person ~ is therefore covered by the person.
Do not stand the person directly against the wall.

Since it is a full moon night, the moon is already in the southeast in the sky at sunset and the entry into the earth~ has begun. From this point on, the moon becomes darker and darker and begins to turn reddish in color.

When the sun is too strong and the person being photographed has to blink all the time, or the sun ~ shows in their face, then prefer to photograph people in the ~. Make sure, however, that they are still facing the sun. The faces are then still very nicely lit.

To get the full drawing in lights and ~ In the past, he mostly had to work with gradient filters, which always involved a certain amount of effort. With the new Nikon DSLR, all brightness areas of the subject are covered in many cases without the need for filters.

Increase contrast: The lights are brightened further and the ~ further darkened. This results in an increased image contrast for the correction of images that are too flat / poor in contrast.
Dim Lights: Dims the highlights while leaving the midtones and shadows unchanged.

Direct lightning strike~ by frontal flash
Even if the clip-on flash is a practical helper, direct use from the front often produces harsh light and thus hard, angular images.

The ideal light for a picture is clear, direct or directional light that falls on a subject and is reflected by it because it is clear ~ and thus creates a good contrast as long as the light source does not create any backlight.

For example, a reflector to keep the mushrooms - keyword ~ - to put it in a better light. Another option: a small (but powerful) LED flashlight. Or a speed bouncer. So you dip the mushrooms yourself ~ in an atmospheric light.

The direction from which the light comes determines how that ~ fall, especially the ~ the nose and the light in the eyes are to be noted here.
The noses~ shouldn't be a nodule under the nose and it shouldn't extend unattractively onto the cheek.

Tip - light and ~
As the saying goes: where there is light there is also ~! Why shouldn't we use this for our recordings? The light is different at every time of the day and we can incorporate these differences into our photos.

Furthermore, design features of a lens lead to vignetting, such as the Ab~ the marginal rays through the aperture when the optimal angle of view or the image circle is exceeded.

The camera's internal flash, in particular, sometimes acts like a photon cannon that is far too hard ~ and throws far too sharp edges into the picture frontally.

The dynamic range is very much dependent on the quality of your camera, for example the Nikon D800 was designed for its special dynamic range after its release ~areas that were previously only known from medium format cameras such as Pentax or Phase1.

Those thrown by a chief light ~ are brightened or illuminated.
Name for an aid or additional light source. A brightener is used around those cast by a main light ~ brighten or fully illuminate.

For us, the blue hour is characterized by still / already sufficient light without the usual impact of direct sunlight~ out. In contrast to the large light / dark differences in direct sunlight, the illumination is more even.

Almost makes such a thing possible ~loose illumination of the object. Developed primarily for medical photography. But had a hype in fashion photography in the early 2000s.

With a ring flash, the flash lamps are positioned in a ring around the lens, in contrast to the clip-on flash. The advantage of the ring flash is that it doesn't have any ~ throws (depending on the set focal length, the lens can, in the case of a plug-on flash, ~ throw).

and the background light still flows in, there is long and short-term synchronization for flashing in bright surroundings or with long-term exposures at night, you can illuminate the subject directly from the flash unit or indirectly through a reflector such as a wall or a white ceiling to ~ to ...

to photograph the object in cloudy weather so as not to have hard light and a lot of light /~-To have situations. When it is cloudy, it is usually evenly illuminated. For a more emotional picture, the house could also be taken at dusk.

Personally, I don't like taking photos during lunchtime, as the sun shines directly on the buildings from above and is hard on the one hand ~ as a result, and on the other hand, some areas are completely outshone, so that not all details can be captured.

These are displayed on a scale from 0 to 255 and in depths (~), Midtones and highlights. The more pixels of a tone value there are, the higher the deflection.

Photography lives from light, from the contrast between light and ~ and, in the case of the color image, additionally from the color tones. This photo is correctly exposed and the white balance also appears to be fine. But the monotonous and completely unspectacular light in this shot is just bland.

Fill flash
A weak flash that is always used when certain things are backlit ~ should be brightened. The general flood of light is not the aim of the flash.

On the other hand, Lightroom as well as Photoshop also offer extensive correction options, which the Gimp certainly has in the ~ and if you are already familiarizing yourself with new image processing, I always recommend the Adobe photographer package.

The right light often decides whether the later picture looks cheerful or rather gloomy. You can also use the ~ optimize and adjust your later picture with the help of studio lights or "softboxes" so that you are always satisfied with the result.

Gamma value: determines how the brightness gradient is built up within the color space, or how many values ​​the ~ and describe lights.

My favorite place is the Smokin 'Pineapple and the beach that goes with it. Everything is very cozy here, there are swings and a hammock in the water and there are enough on the beach ~- donating places available. We spend most of our visit here.

I think it is clear that this mode is the most demanding of you. Here it is sufficient to just point the camera a little in a different direction, for example from the sun towards the ~, and you are miles wrong with your settings and have to set everything again.

The preferred subjects of a photography or photography reflection are camera, light and ~ - sometimes in connection with the mirror.

The color temperature is shown in Kelvin and usually ranges from around 1500-2000K (candlelight) to 2500-3000K (white incandescent lamp light), 4000K (white fluorescent light, "neon tube"), 5500K (clear daylight) to well over 8000K (~ during the day).
