For Lens-Artists Photo challenge is Amy our host this week and she challenges us with “natural light”.
What is “natural light”. You could say, natural light is when there is no artificial light in a scene. In general, this term is used in people photography and not in landscape, nature, wildlife, or macro photography. It means you’re working only with the available light and no flash. Sometimes, you have the problem, that certain parts are not illuminated and therefore you need to add light. But, following the idea of natural light, only working with a reflector in maximum for directing the light to your subject.
Many photographers call this kind of photography the royal league of photography. I, personally, love it more than using flashes. Taking photographs outdoors is more challenging than in a studio because you have to cope with the current light situations. This makes it more interesting than the studio with its predictable light conditions.
All these images are taken without artificial light (aka flash). Instead, I only worked with the natural light (aka available light). In some of the images, I used a reflector for directing the natural light to where I needed it or brighten the dark side of the model/scene.
