Working with light outdoors may seem pretty straightforward, but there are many ways to improve outdoor light with subject positioning. continuous light 57 For example, with the sun low in the sky, you can rotate yourself and your subject to use side light, back light, front light, broad light, short light, loop or Rembrandt light.

This is often used in portraiture to make the subject look thinner. the language of light 33 Butterfly lighting is produced when the light falls on the subject from directly in front of (and above) them. Loop lighting is produced when the light falls on the subject from a shallow angle in front of (and above) them. As the light moves to a slightly greater angle, Rembrandt lighting (with its characteristic triangle highlight on the shadow-side cheek) is produced.

First, meter the brighter side. Then, meter the shadow side, placing the meter so that you avoid getting spillover from the key light. Compare the two readings. 6 on the shadow side, that information tells you that the key-light side has twice as much light as the shadow side (remember, each 1-stop change in exposure doubles the amount of light; refer back to page 10 if you need clarification on this).
