Re: How to deal with light and shadow in shooting?

I am no expert but I think you should consider using f/8 at 1/250 of a second and place your iso on a 100 (adjust your shutterspeed according to your light meter.)

If your normal exposure is f/8 then you will shoot at f/8, f/5.8 and f/11 with the same shutter speed. In order to achieve light and shadow images consider your 1.light direction; where it comes from in relationship to your subject. 2. The intensity the brightness of the light source in relationship to your subject. 3. Your contrast, how bold and strong or soft and subtle they are. 4. The hardness whether it is soft or hard edges and lastly the color (is there a cast to the light.)
