The right light


“What is essential is invisible to the eye.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

A few years ago I started to wonder how I wanted my photographs were, during the study academy teachers had advised me to always go through an artistic approach, in this way the photographs were really nice, otherwise, other approaches lead to disappointing results.In academy we could use the considerable equipment, and try everything that you can try. But, choose as it is a very personal matter. Flash, natural light, continuous light, mixed light?
I am looking and searching I found a post by a photographer Dallas J. Logan, in his blog , who spoke of the light. All the years he was asked what equipment uses and that light uses   the photographer responds more or less that it is important to choose your own light, there is no better light, but in relation to its tilt must be made the choice.So I started to choose what felt answer my need to transpose an artistic basis, the background from which I come, in the photograph. My choice in terms of light is neither fashion nor Orthodox  infact I use the continuous lights that normally are used for shooting video, and often mix continuous light with natural light. This allows me to express the emotion I want. So in conclusion, beyond the fashions, everyone has to find the right one light able to tell the best story.The question is: What is the right light for you?
