Photo Tip of the Week :: Lighting

Every week, Sugarhouse Ink is pleased to bring you a quick and easy photo tip! Every now and then we'll have a guest photographer to give us special instruction. Today's tip is about lighting.

Most photos (especially digital) turn out the best when they're taken in natural light. If you take a photo with a flash and then take the same photo with the flash turned off, you'll see a huge difference in the natural appearance of everything. When considering natural light, it is important to avoid direct sunlight by taking pictures in the morning or late afternoon. This will keep those harsh shadows away from your beautiful subjects. Another way to achieve great lighting is to take a picture near a bright window. The window can diffuse the light, while still adding depth to the subject.
