Become a better photographer - Through light

Explore photography through light

Before you can really understand photography, you have to know your light. It’s the essence of every image. Photography means drawing or painting with light. It’s much more than simply capturing images with your camera, it’s about creating them.

How to control your light

To make your photography stand out, you need to take control of the situation no matter what the light or time of day is. You do this by knowing your light and understanding the direction and distance. It’s not only about having the right light shaping tools. You also need to know how to use these tools. And that’s where Profoto Academy can help you.
