Perfect Inspiration: How to Create Light and Drama

Posted on May 30, 2014 by Peter Kinnan

by Hudson Henry www.hudsonhenry.com, Facebook

Imagine. You are hired to capture that special landscape location product shot for a discerning client. The time constraints are tight and the weather refuses to provide any nice light to work with. That’s exactly the problem I faced this spring on South Padre Island, Texas. Did I panic? Well, maybe a little… but then I put onOne’s Perfect Effects filters to work creating the light and drama my client needed. The result? Despite shooting the images in nearly flat light, the client was extremely happy.
