daily inspiration #SideLight

Today, explore the world of lighting possibilities with the Thursday Inspiration #SideLight.

Lighting is a crucial element in a photograph, so today we’re asking you to explore one of the basic lighting techniques: side lighting. Side lighting is great for creating drama in an image, especially in portraits, because part of your subject is illuminated, while the other remains in shadow. It can make for some really cool shots, and you don’t even need professional lighting equipment! Natural sunlight shining through a window can be all you need for a beautiful, dramatic portrait.

Try it out today, and share your captures with the hashtag #SideLight.
