As the sun sets into the night and natural light becomes scarce, get creative with the artificial light sources available around you. Illuminate your scene by candlelight, a glow from your phone screen, or a beam from the open refrigerator door.
We recently released The Artificial Light series, our latest filter pack that softens or boosts the effects of LED, fluorescent, or mixed lighting scenarios. Ideal for indoor, food, and night photography, AL1-AL6 can transform scenes with tricky lighting to appear either more natural or even supernatural.
Combine light sources.
Explore and experiment with unexpected forms of lighting in your own home. Get creative and pair different kinds of light together, such as the sun’s natural glow with a candle's flame or the bold color of a lava lamp with a nightlight. The combinations and possibilities are limitless and can produce unique results.
Soften colors with AL5.
Multiple lighting sources can have a chaotic effect on colors in an image. Try creating harmony from the unique mixture of lighting sources with AL5.
Boost colors with AL6.
Embrace the unexpected and striking look that results from a combination of multiple kinds of light. With AL6, play to the light's strengths and emphasize bold color.
