One of the most important elements to get a good photo is the lighting. It is essential for the photograph to be obtained with the best results, since it is useless to take a good shot without proper lighting.
There are several types of photographic lighting, the first is natural, which comes from the sun, the clarity of the day, a light that the photographer must know how to handle, since being a natural light you do not have control of it, you just learn to use it. The second type of lighting is artificial lighting, which comes from created objects such as ring lights, reflectors, etc. The main characteristic of this type of light is that it does not vary, so it is controllable, and can be used at any time and place. This ebook looks at lighting as it pertains to photography.
