The LIGHT Side is an active Facebook group I founded in 2012, now with over 4,100 members worldwide.
The focus of the group is learning and understanding all things light and lighting related to still and video photography.
Many group members are considered to be experts in their sphere or genre and will give freely to help others develop. A number of members joined the group as total beginners with no understanding of light, lighting and no desire to share images. These members have been coached and mentored to the point where they are now active group members who have developed skills to confidently create their own images with supplementary lights.
We also have a >f.r.e.e< periodic PDF lighting Digest, bringing together content influenced by contributions from within The LIGHT Side.
If you're a photographer, beginner, amateur, keen enthusiast or even professional, join The LIGHT Side now - there's a lot going on and we regularly see members join from other Facebook groups which are nothing more than time wasting groups for gathering "Likes"!
Photographers learn all sorts of lighting tricks and tips as members of The LIGHT Side. Here a boring flat image is given a little lift with the aid of a flash & 7ft silver lighting umbrella.
