Photography lighting for a home studio

A truly great photo is immediately recognizable by a professional quality that is hard to define.  The models glow, the product lines are crisp and sharp, and each individual family member looks their best in a portrait.  Although creative flair and a high quality camera play their part, the defining feature of a great photo is how well the photographer has used the light.  Great lighting can create drama and draw in the viewer, turning an ordinary photograph into true art.  While the amount of new gear and techniques available can be initially daunting, creating outstanding results in a home studio is a very achievable goal for a photographer looking to take their skills to the next level. With some basic equipment, a good set-up and a trained eye, a home studio can produce images to rival established professionals.


Why is lighting important?  No matter how talented the photographer or the excellence of their equipment, a photo will not be high quality unless the lighting is right.  Amateurs often make the mistake of assuming that expensive equipment and complicated techniques will produce great photos. This often means that they spend the bulk of their budget on the equipment to capture a good photo, instead of the lighting which will actually create the shot.  Professional studio photographers know the importance of lighting, and tend to direct the bulk of their budget to acquire high quality equipment. Using natural light where possible can produced excellent images, and a detachable flash in the hands of a talented photographer is a great tool. However, even these techniques need an understanding of how light can be manipulated and directed to produce images. There are some shots that simply cannot be achieved without a studio set up to maximise the potential of lighting.
