Soft Light

Photography is all about light. As such, it should come as no surprise that lighting is one of the most important aspects in creating a great photograph. The quality of lighting can make the difference between a mediocre shot and a fantastic one. This week, we will focus on one particular type of light: Soft Light.

Soft Light is a diffused, even light that comes from a large area. Examples of soft light include a cloudy day, light diffused through a large curtain or sheet, outdoor shade, etc. Because these light sources are relatively large, they tend the light the subject very evenly, providing very smooth, gradual transitions from lighter to darker areas. This soft, smooth light can make for very pleasing photographs.
