The Return of Hot Lights

With the advent of affordable electronic flash in the 1970s, hot lights (incandescent/tungsten) were almost abandoned as a tool for still photography. Why are hot lights, and all constant lights for that matter, becoming so popular again? The main reason is because continuous lights provide a ‘what-you-see-is-what-you-get’ result. Another reason is because modern digital cameras are able to shoot in relatively low light levels, so low wattage continuous lights are bright enough for portrait shooting. Regardless, this subject deserves some attention. All photos copyright 2011 Jeffery Jay Luhn. All rights reserved. History: From 1930 through 1970 hot lights ruled the...

Behind the Lesson: Accentuating Natural Light

An editorial on the lesson Accentuating Natural Light by Jaron Schneider To be honest, I haven't been using controlled lighting for more than four months. It was an intimidating process for me, and my experiences with shoemount flash on my camera in previous years was anything but successful. I hope I'm not the only one, but whenever I put one of those speedlights onto my camera, not a single photo I took came out usable. Harsh, flat light was commonplace. It was even worse using the flash that came attached to my camera. This was likely due to...
