Reflectors can be useful indeed.. do keep in mind that sometimes it can be prefered to
skip using it. Sometimes without is better. It all depends on the scene.

Thanks. As i haven't used it yet, I understand better how to work without it than with it. But I have a shoot today and tomorrow :happybounce:
Hopefully I can improve on this shot... The lack of light gave the effect I was looking for, but hurt the quality a bit. :fingerscrossed:
Thanks again for your kind and helpful words, and your inspiring shots!!! :tighthug:

So what's stopping you? ;)
Lighting is one of the most important factors in photography. So it is a really good idea to experiment with lighting. Practice with yourself as the subject.
If you look at my ID photo, I did that with my computer monitor as the light source. ;)
Good luck! And thanks for the input. :hug:

I got your note, and will get back to you "soon."
Frankly, I am still trying to get there myself.
But school is a great way to start.
I only got started in photography about a year ago. And wish I could afford to take some classes to learn the TECH stuff required to work a PRO camera.
You are on the right track though. There are a lot of very helpful people here on DA. As a start, I would say, do what you did with me, find work you really admire, and as them questions. Some may not respond, but a lot will be happy to help,LIKE ME! LOL.
That is how I learned some of my skills.
The other thing I do, is take a lot of pictures! Then go through them, and figure out what worked and why?! This will help you find your "style"
Anyway, gotta go, but ask me some more questions and i will happily help. :glomp:

thank you so much. this helped me a lot. before this year i would have never really considered photography for a professional career for myself, but i really like it now. i am also in honors math and science, which i extremely enjoy as well. i think going that way would be more practical and easier to find a job in, but im still not sure. i have been researching careers that specialize in math and science aspects, and i have found some really interesting ones. math is pretty much my passion ,so i will prolly end up going that way, but i don't really know XD

That's great! There is quite a bit of Math involved in photography as well. Mostly in the composition. But the truth is, if you want to do something bad enough, you will succeed. Because it is what you LOVE!
That is what makes it a lot less like "work!" :D

Interesting light here :) It falls nicely on the model's face but the dim atmosphere made the picture grainy.
I am only in the beginning of my way as an amateur photographer, but I figured for myself that quality issues such as grain, blur, noise, exposure etc. are quite important. You ask for advice in your profile... So here it is :)

Thanks! I am disappointed with the quality, but it was a learning experience. I got the shot I wanted, but needed a little better light.
