Werfen Sie zusammen mit einem Weltklasse-Profi einen Blick hinter die Kulissen und erfahren Sie, wie eindrucksvolle Aufnahmen von der Konzeption bis zur Aufnahme entstehen. Schöpfen Sie die einzigartigen Qualitäten sämtlicher Lichtarten aus – ein regnerischer, grauer Morgen kann mit dem richtigen Ansatz genauso ausdrucksstark sein wie ein goldener Sonnenuntergang. Verbessern Sie Ihre Fähigkeiten und schärfen Sie Ihr Verständnis, um schnell und effektiv mit der richtigen Technik auf den richtigen Licht-Typ zu reagieren. Genießen Sie Seite für Seite voller inspirierender Bilder und Illustrationen – alle untermalt mit praktischen und technischen Informationen sowie professionellen Ratschlägen. Professionelle Fotografen jagen ständig nach Licht, warten, helfen nach und nehmen Bilder auf – zuweilen bis zur Besessenheit. Michael Freeman arbeitet schon seit vier Jahrzehnten mit Licht und zeigt hier einen einfachen, aber praktischen Ansatz, das wichtigste Gut der Fotografie zu interpretieren, darauf zu reagieren und es aufzunehmen. Diese praktischen Ratschläge teilen sich in drei Abschnitte: Warten, Jagen und Nachhelfen. Üben Sie sich zunächst in der Kunst der Geduld und erkennen Sie den unermesslichen Wert, Licht vorhersehen und damit planen zu können, obwohl es den Horizont noch nicht erreicht hat. Lernen Sie, wie Sie flüchtigen, vergänglichen Lichtsituationen begegnen und sie beherrschen, schnell denken und schnell reagieren. Nutzen Sie schließlich die Werkzeuge, die Ihnen zur Verfügung stehen, um das vorhandene Licht zu verstärken und zu manipulieren – von den Optionen vor Ort bis hin zu den technischen Mitteln der Nachbearbeitung. Mit dieser Methode arbeiten Sie wie ein Profi – Sie finden sich in allen Lichtsituationen zurecht, setzen sie um und kennen sich aus –, um die eine Aufnahme in den Kasten zu bekommen. Aus dem Inhalt: • Weiches Sonnenlicht • Seitenlicht • Reflektiertes Licht • Gegenlicht • Goldene Stunde • Lichter der Stadt • Spot • Blendenflecke • Schlagschatten-Licht • Flutlicht • Aufhelllicht • Umhüllendes Licht • Licht mit unvollständigem Spektrum • Zeitraffer-Licht • u.v.m.
