Hi, I'm Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media. Now, today, I'd like to talk to you a bit about lighting for darker colors. Now, I've got a little demonstration here and usually what happens with people in photography when they run into the issues is actually going to be mostly with clothing, lighting cert, certain types of clothing. Now, so I have a white and a black shirt here. Now, the light that falls onto it as you can see, you may get a little bit of detail on the blacks, but the whites, they're going to be brighter. Now, as you start to dim down your light and then bring it back up, notice the difference between how dark the black gets as oppose to the white as, when, when the light starts to go down. Even when you lose a little bit of light, the white is still registering at a good level. But, the black may get way too black. So, simply put, to light for darker colors, you're just going to need a little bit more light. I'm Dan Reinecke, take your best shot.
