How To Shape Natural Light with Negative Fill

INCLUDED IN THIS LESSON:  8 Minutes of Instructional Video    –Supplied w/English Subtitles

IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN:  This is Part 3 of a 6 Part series on Lighting Day Exteriors.  Where we discuss everything from scouting your location, to planning your shooting day around the path of the sun, to lensing, lighting with available light, artificial light, negative fill and deliver a complete scene.

In order to set yourself up for success during a time of day with harsh sunlight, take into consideration things at your location that are bouncing light. This video lesson, article, and image series go through the process of adding negative fill and shooting when the sun is right.  Creating contrast and delivering cinematic images.


<<<Orvon J>>> Thanks Shane. Really great content. If I had of been shooting this, I would have just shot it as is with the sun behind or even bounced light into their faces. I can see now that my approach would be so wrong. I have never used solids to the extent you use them for negative fill. You have really taught me how important it is to control fill. Excellent!
<<<Matthew W>>> That was an amazing Lesson.
<<<Ahmed>>>Really it is impossible to find a training series with this huge production in all other sites. You are always astonishing us Shane.
<<<Arthur>>>Negative fill is one of those things that never occurred to me but seemed so obvious once it was pointed out. Thank you for creating this series that really clarifies how to shape light – even when it seems impossible, in the middle of the day!
<<<Sloan>>>Wow… I’ve used Negative before, but not this much. It makes such a huge difference!
<<<John>>>Thanks for all that you do and sharing the knowledge. I love negative fill, and it was awesome to see the results you showed here!
