FLEXO Magazine : October 2011
One of the ways to minimize the loss of highlight detail in photos is to exaggerate the differences between tonal values with good lighting.The photographer should strive to use lighting that accentuates contrast. Contrast shows detail across every sur- face of the subject and the differences between tonal values. Placing the main light to “scrape” across the subject will bring out texture in photos and shows the natural undulations in a seemingly flat surface by exaggerating the tones. This technique also gives a sharpening filter something to affect during post-processing. It is like adding spacers between values that will resist compression when dot gain tries to squeeze them together. Front lighting notoriously flattens out the subject and decreases contrast. For this reason, studio photographers rarely use camera-mounted flashes. It is apparent that a photo has been lit from the front when the shadows appear behind the subject.
