Photography Lighting Techniques | Studio Photography


My name is Chris Ryan. I’m a photographer. We’re here at my studio, Chris Ryan Photography,
in northwest Portland. If you’d like to see more of my work, please
visit my website at chrisryanphoto.com, or if you’d like to follow my daily activities,
go to my Facebook page, Chris Ryan Photography in Portland, Oregon. Today, I’m going to talk to you about studio
photography. I’d like to talk a little bit about the different
types of lighting available for photography. Artificial light for photography ranges really
from your bounce card or your reflector, all the way up to studio lights and beyond that
to arena lights. The basics are that reflector that bounces
a little bit of natural light, or even a little bit of artificial light in a direction that
you want it. And then, we move on to small portable lights
that can be mounted on the shoe of the camera. And often times, those can be also controlled
by a radio transmitter. And so you can have your small compact portable
light now be a directional light, because you’ve got it off camera, way off to the side. And then you have studio lights. They all come with the ability to attach a
modifier to it. An umbrella, or a soft box. And then you go all the way up to your arena
lights that are mounted up in the corners of arenas to light up an NBA game. But that’s the basics about photography lighting.
