In this free video, world renowned outdoor photographer Ian Plant shows you three basic lighting styles and how they can work for you. The first is front lighting, which occurs when the sun is behind you and the subject in front of you. Wildlife photographers favor this style for enhancing colors and details.

Ian prefers this creative outdoor photography lighting style because it adds translucence and rim lighting to your subjects whether you photograph animals, trees, flowers, or mountains.
