Here’s this weekend’s tutorial courtesy, as always, of Fujifilm UK. This tutorial looks at light sources, which to use and how to use light to the best advantage. As always, my sincere thanks to Fujifilm UK for posting and allowing reblogs of their posts.
You may have a personal preference as to which light source you prefer, be it natural or artificial and, despite the combative title of this blog, we’re not for one minute going to suggest that one is better than the other. Instead, we’d suggest that it’s what you’re shooting that counts and should make your choice accordingly.
By way of demonstration, I set up a couple of still-life images, lighting one using artificial light from a humble desk lamp and the other using diffused daylight on a cloudy day. Along with the lighting being switched, I also changed the subject, but nothing else – the background is the same as is the kit – a tripod-mounted X-T1 with the spectacular XF90mm F2.
