SOURCES OF HARD LIGHT ARE:
Light that comes from a source which has an apparent small surface area of source.
e.g. Direct sunlight, flash, bare light bulb or a spot light
SOURCES OF SOFT LIGHT ARE:
Any light that comes from an apparent large surface area in relation to the subject that you are taking a picture of.
e.g. Light through clouds on an overcast day, a big window with net curtains, A large studio Soft Box . Soft light can also be produced from a hard light source if it has been reflected off of a large plain surface back onto the subject therefore creating the effect of a large light.
Light which is visible in your image from its source
Exactly that - light that is reflected off an object or reflected light onto our subject (most of the light that we view around us)
So dalam keadaan cahaya mana paling sesuai ambik gambor? Banyak pendapat kata in general dalam keadaan soft light., sebab cahaya soft, tak harsh, etc, etc. Pada aku debatable, sebabnya depends kat kreativiti setiap individu and apa kehendak orang yang ambik gambor tu.
Kalau landscape photographer misalnya, ada semua jenis lights macam kat atas tu perfect. Tapi kalau untuk potraiture, softlight kot yang paling sesuai.
