How to shoot Black Objects on Black Backgrounds

How to shoot Black Objects on Black Backgrounds | Backlight Magazine. Photography and community. | Scoop.it

When shooting a dark colored object against a dark background, one challenge is that the edges of the object tend to get lost in the background. Here are two ways to deal with this:

1. Light the background to add separation. This it the technique I used in my last post.

2. Use rim lighting to clearly define the edges of the object, as shown in the photo above.

The key to this kind of rim lighting is hard, directional light, so that the light goes exactly where you want it, and nowhere else. Good lighting is often about what not to light, as much as it is about what to light.

Easy Tips to Adjust the Colors of A Landscape

Easy Tips to Adjust the Colors of A Landscape | Backlight Magazine. Photography and community. | Scoop.it

These will make the biggest difference! Curves can be used to easily adjust light levels and colors in your images. We don’t have ay lights or darks, so I’m going to bring down the shadows and brighten up the highlight areas under the RGB dropdown option. This is known as an “S curve,” which adds contrast.

Malgré ses difficultés, la presse magazine séduit les annonceurs | Backlight Magazine. Photography and community. | Scoop.it

De l'avis de plusieurs annonceurs présents à Rome, les magazines ont souvent ce petit supplément d'âme qui construit un lien avec le lecteur. « C'est un média engageant, qui permet d'acheter de la profondeur : les lecteurs ne le subissent pas, ils vont l'acheter, et ont souvent une relation forte avec lui », rappelle Thierry Jadot, PDG de Starcom France. « Du coup, les magazines sont prisés par des secteurs comme le luxe, la beauté, la décoration ou encore l'automobile. » Et certaines campagnes témoignent d'une réelle créativité.

What are Instagram and Twitter fighting about, and why?

Instagram used to play nicely with Twitter. But hostilities broke out in July after Instagram was bought by Facebook. This prompted Twitter to disable a feature which let Instagram users import their lists of friends from Twitter; this was, in effect, importing Twitter friendships into the Facebook universe. Now Instagram has shot back. From December 10th Instagram images are no longer visible in tweets. Twitter users must instead visit Instagram’s own website in order to see and comment on them. The same day, Twitter responded by releasing a new version of its app, which allows styling of images using a range of filters — a feature popularised by Instagram. On December 11th Instagram retaliated by beefing up the camera on its own app.
