The Impact of Small Changes

In case you missed this quick tip on my Facebook page, here it is…


These 2 images were taken 2 seconds apart.

There is a HUGE difference between the two, yet I only made ONE TINY change.  What did I change from Image A to Image B? 

[Hint: It is the same location.]



When you want “good light” for Portrait Photography and the light currently isn’t ideal, you have a variety of options, such as use a reflector, change locations, and hold a diffuser above the subject — just to name a few.  However, you don’t always have those options available because of any number of reasons (ie, not enough time, your subject is fast-moving). 

So what can you do?  Consider that SMALL changes can offer BIG results as well! 

In this example, I used the same camera, lens and settings.  I didn’t introduce anything or take anything away.  Everything was the same, except…

I had my subject turn slightly where she was sitting.  That was it! 

Changing the angle of the light source to the subject changed the quality of light on her face.  Booyah!
