In countless videos and classes I have seen people misrepresent this key lighting concept. Negative fill doesn’t suck light out of the shadows, it blocks light from entering. Watch as I prove it to you in three demonstrations.
So I sat down with professional photographer and lighting expert Jeff Carpenter (of Ready Light Media fame), to go over 5 images from multiple genres (submitted by their makers) to give suggestions on how the photos could be improved.
In this VLOG I take you along with me to this year’s convention in Las Vegas, including taking you behind-the-scenes and introducing you to some of my dear friends.
There are two main approaches you can take in the studio, or on location. And which lane you choose will have a huge impact on the outcome of your images. You could choose to emulate window light, or you could choose to simulate sunlight.
