Discover How to Capture Stunning Light Effects With Your Camera
What are Light Tricks?
We’ve got all the answers right here in our introductory guide to the iPhotography Light Tricks Course. This is going to be the most fun you’ve ever had with your camera!
The ancient Greeks first used the word ‘Phos’ ‘Graphe’ (meaning light drawing) many years ago and this basic principle has been the cornerstone for creating photographs since the birth of the camera.
Our cameras can only create an image when light is present but the ability to trick light in different directions, shapes, qualities, and colours makes our love of photography soar with possibilities. The Light Tricks course is all about just that – we have compiled amazing techniques, ideas, practical exercises into a fun and interactive online learning experience.

3 Ways to Use Natural Light
Sunlight can be discussed using a few different photography terms and approaches. There are normally 4 considerations photographers look at when using natural light in their photos - Direction, Colour, Intensity and Quality.
In which direction is the light falling? Is the direction of the light where you need it to be? While it’s very hard to change the direction of natural light unless you’re using reflectors you may have to move your subject into the path of the light to get the right finish.
There are 3 main directions that you can use natural light in a photo;

How to Be a Nature Photographer
Going from a beginner nature photographer to making money from your camera you need dedication. It requires time and a never-ending passion to get outdoors with your cameras and practise new techniques. Get outdoors early and return when the sun sets.
Get familiar with your local woodlands and read nature books to learn about wildlife, birding and foliage. This will help you understand what you are shooting and when is the best time of year to find these subjects.
The other challenge when shooting through glass is the tinting. Unfortunately, architects and designers didn’t think about us photographers when creating these skyscrapers.
Their windows are invariably tinted in some way to help with heating.
This means that some of your photos may have a green/grey tint to them.
It’s not the biggest issue as you can rebalance this tint in editing with the ‘tint’ slider for example.
