As you know, part of the success of a good photography, of its capacity of impact, its expressivity¦ is obtained thanks to a good work in illumination. We could say that the Light is the raw material with which we worked the photographers. For that reason today I want to speak envelope to you how to illuminate in interiors. Concretely, in study. And that better way to do the one that of the hand of Profoto. For some months I am comprising of this wonderful family, since I have been named Official Profoto Trainer, and to share this experience next to colleagues of profession as Alba Soler, Franu Rey and Pepa Valero, enriches to me much more. The Profoto family is much more ample and includes professionals of the photography of all the areas. They three belong to the field of infantile and familiar photography, each with their own style, but it is clear that to the four she unites our passion to us by the photography, and to be within Profoto that, under my brand, point of view best of illumination of the market. You intention who you follow its profiles and you enjoy its work.
They are many new born years dedicating me to the photography of, reason why all the recommendations that you will read next, are fruit of years of experience and practice working the combination of natural light with artificial light to secure the looked for effect, the perfect photography, that one that is able to transmit and to affect. It has cost to give to me much with the perfect equipment of illumination, since I mainly look for a light that does not annul the natural light, but the power and fills up there where I need it.
One of the keys to work this combination is to know clearly how to balance them to be able to use simultaneously them. So here I leave my recommendations you, that I hope that they are to you useful:
ATencion to lto direction of the natural light
In the photography of new born most important it is to secure natural photos where the absolute protagonist is the baby. In order to avoid little natural photos, we will have to observe from where the natural light comes and to place the flash in the same axis that the one of the natural light that arrives to us. Thus we will secure a realistic illumination much more.
favorite is my Profoto B10, enchants its compact design to me, always there are children by the study and to work without cables by in the middle is a great lightening.
The light diffuser
As you already know, the diffuser helps to smooth out the light us of the flash and to clarify the shades, reason why pa my is essential. I have several diffusers in the study, following the final effect that wants to give my images, but my favorite diffuser is the Umbrella Deep White L
The power, better loss
In order to secure a more natural light, mainly when we used stuffed flash of as complement to the natural light, it is necessary to reduce the power of the sparkle. This will help us to illuminate better the zone than we want securing the effect of natural light that as much I like in this type of photography.
