Adjusting Lighting Contrast in the Studio
In studio photography, lighting contrast is selected depending on the desired visual message and image impact. It can be defined as the relationships which exist amongst key light, fill-in light, edge light and background light. The handheld exposure meter based on the incident light metering method is held up to the subject facing the light source to be adjusted, whose power or distance is varied until the desired value is obtained. As a rule, key light is set as a fixed reference value which indicates the intensity of the other light sources as deviation from the reference value in f-stops (EV) with a fixed synchronization speed.
