Essential to the creation of any beautiful image, the presence or absence of the right lighting can make so much difference to any photograph.
The first form of brightness is provided by equipment, and takes the form of either constant LEDs or on-demand flash – or speed – lighting. This may be used outside as well as indoors. LED lighting is favoured by professionals as it can provide a subtle, portable and highly versatile source of light. The subject can be lit to just the right level required before being captured on camera.
Sometimes, though, even constant LEDs have their limitations. This is why your photographer may be keen to use both throughout your big day. The power of the light coming from a traditional flash is incomparable, and one burst of strong light may really make or break an image.
As we at Matthew Rycraft Photography know only too well, the second main type of lighting is reliant on the weather. Whether shooting during cloudy or overcast weather or in direct sunlight, the availability of natural light can have a big impact on the type of pictures produced.
Fortunately, Matt excels during bad weather, which is reassuring given the notorious British climate. Where other photographers may struggle during storms, Matt still can provide an outstanding set of images. Sometimes, these can even be much more atmospheric than those taken on a sunny day.
