I recently asked PhotoLust's watchers, friends and contributers If you could share ONE hint, tip or piece of advice for photography what would it be?
This news article is the result of their answers and features thumbs from the people who's words of wisdom are shared here. The contributers to this article are photographers of a variety of ages and skill levels who work within a number of genres, but they all have one thing in common - they love what they do and they have something useful to say.
If you're photographing anything indoors- whether it is a flower, still life shoot, person- whatever, make sure you have extra lighting other than the ceiling light. They are never enough- so get as many lamps as you can to face at your subject as you can. to avoid harsh shadows, put a thin piece of tracing paper over them to diffuse the light.
