Using Reflected Light and Negative Fill to Your Advantage in Photography


Understanding how to use reflected light and negative fill are two of the most valuable lessons to learn as a photographer. Make sure you have these concepts in your photography arsenal.

The team over at Aputure are back once more with another valuable video on the subject of reflected light. This week, Ted Sim leaves no stone unturned when it comes to explaining how powerful reflectied light can be for us photographers and filmmakers.

For those who don’t know what reflected or bounce lighting is, in a nutshell, we are talking about the indirect light, which is literally bouncing off most surfaces of the scene and affecting how it looks. Many of you will have seen how a reflector can be used to do this, but in essence, everything on the planet is bouncing light off it in varying degrees. This can be a good thing or a bad thing, but once you are aware of how light works, you’ll be better at making it do the things you want it to do.
