So I’m gonna tell you a little bit about lighting and why we use this type of lighting when we’re shooting videos or photographs, and it’s so you can actually see the product.
If it’s a face, hair, sweater, or whatever, the photographers need to eliminate shadows because they’re extremely distracting. And if you’ve ever done a selfie in dappled sunlight under a tree with the leaves, you’ll see that it’s very, very hard to get consistency because the camera reads the dark as super dark and the light as super light.
So they light us very evenly, so you can see everything and there’s nothing distracting. Well, the side effect is it takes away all shadows, and seeing shadows is how you see texture.
So that’s why you’re not seeing the texture of my skin because of the way the light is taking away all the shadow. But I’m gonna show you a photograph with lots of shadow, and you’re gonna see what I look like in another type of light.
