Cheapshooter.com describes four different kinds of lighting â€“ frontlighting, diffused frontlighting, backlighting and sidelighting â€“ and how each impacts your photos.
Author Dan writes, â€œLight is the backbone in every photograph. In this post-processing, Photoshop-faking, high-dynamic-ranging world of modern photography, beginning photographers often forget about light in the process. Itâ€™s to their detriment: Almost every other photographic flaw – poor composition, cheap equipment, etc. – can be excused simply if the light is good. And, despite what a lot of people may think, good lighting is something that just canâ€™t be faked.â€
