Photographic Lighting

Photographic lighting is the illumination of scenes to be photographed. A photograph simply records patterns of light, colour, and shade; lighting is all-important in controlling the image. In many cases even illumination is desired to give an accurate rendition of the scene. In other cases the direction, brightness, and colour of light are manipulated for effect. Lighting is particularly important for monochrome photography, where there is no colour information, only the interplay of highlights and shadows. Lighting and exposure are used to create effects such as low-key and high-key.

The main sources of light for photography are:

  • Daylight, which varies with the weather and the time of day. Different techniques are necessary to take best advantage of, say, brilliant sunshine, and an overcast evening.
  • Continuous artificial light, which may be normal lighting, or produced by special photoflood lights. The properties of different light sources vary; household incandescent lighting, fluorescent lighting, sodium discharge street lighting, etc., are very different and produce different results, and require different correction if a subjectively neutral rendition of colours is required.
  • A bright and very brief photographic flash from a single position (usually very close to the camera) or, in a studio environment, from several.
  • For special purposes lightning, electric sparks, fireworks, moonlight, or other light sources may be exploited.
