In this quick tutorial, wedding photographer Moshe Zusman talks about how he handles lighting with different tools and light shapers. He suggests using off-camera flash for more creativity; you can start with speed lights, and then advance to studio systems with light-shaping tools such as softboxes, grid diffusers, and umbrellas. For more flexibility, you can use wireless triggering systems to fire your camera and flash. Zusman likes grid diffusers on a softbox because the light is more angular and he has more control; it’s easier to balance exposures with off-camera lighting—and you get better skin tones. The tutorial also provides advice about when to use on-camera flash (for the processional only, not during the ceremony), building a studio-lighting setup on the site (key and fill, rim lights, umbrellas, softboxes to control light, and more), making wedding party portraits, and the idea of creating “first look” portraits of the bride and groom so you won’t have to squeeze their portrait session into a 15-minute cocktail hour. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at B&H.com.

Lighting is easily the most important aspect of photography. You could even go as far as saying that lighting is photography: It is even in the word itself: "photography" is Greek for "light drawing," or "drawing with light." Without light, you cannot take photos. It is perfectly possible to take amazing photographs with a very simple camera—as long as the lighting is good. The opposite holds, as well: If you are taking photos in a situation where the lighting is truly appalling, having the fanciest, most expensive camera in the world isn’t going to help you capture the photographs you want. Join Bob Davis as he explores light and the combination of available light and Speedlites. Through this discovery of light you will see the power and possibilities of using all the light available to you, creating quality anywhere, anytime.
