NATURAL OR ELECTRIC? LET THERE BE LIGHT!

CFFC: Natural Light vs Man Made Light

I pretty much always prefer natural light if I have a choice, but sometimes, you don’t have a choice and you have to use flash or some other kind of electric light. I used to have a set of studio lights, but I didn’t use them for so long — and they took up a lot of room — and I gave the to a photographer who could use them. I often wish I hadn’t done that. Oh well.


All natural light, some quite dim (fast lenses)


And now, some less natural light (even faster lenses)

    • I really love night photography in a city. It’s not usually very interesting out here except around Christmas, but when we got into Boston, it was a lot of fun taking pictures of cars and building all lit up.

    • Thank you, Cee. It reminded me how much I loved shooting night scenes in Boston. Night scenes are usually not very interesting in Uxbridge — except around Christmas when things are “lit up.” We hardly ever get into Boston anymore.

      Do you ever get into a real city? The traffic here has gotten so bad, it’s hard to even think about that long drive and the wildly expensive parking.
