“if we can learn to master the light, our chances of success will be so much greater”

When we take photos, much of the time it is light that we are chiefly working with. Of course other factors count too, but if there’s no light, there’s no photo, for it’s light that we are actually capturing. If we can learn to master the light and use it to guide our compositions –and even our editing – then our chances of success will be so much greater. In our feature that begins on p34 of the magazine, Peter Eastway has put together a detailed guide to mastering the light, looking at how to utilise different types of light, from sidelight to backlight, and how to let this inform your framing choices. He also explores image processing considerations and provides his essential tips. Elsewhere this issue, street photography expert Linda Wisdom…

James Rowland DP Gallery address: apertureone Image title: Positano Light What camera, lens and settings did you use to capture this stunning shot? Nikon D810 with Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8 lens. 1/125th sec at f8, ISO 125. How did you decide on the composition? I was looking for an overall view of the town, as I could see the clouds coming over the hillside and wanted to make the most of this – just in time as we were walking back up the hill to catch the bus! What do you like most about the image? The dramatic side lighting and the low clouds coming over the hill absolutely make the shot. Did you do much post-processing? Not much post-processing involved really, just a few tweaks to make the most of the late afternoon colours. Frantisek Dulik DP Gallery address: FeroD Image title: Common…
