Light Modifiers

Light modifiers alter or control the light. Some of them soften the light for more flattering shadows, others create hard light for drama. Others allow photographers to have more creative control over the light by changing the colour or even shape. It’s easy to spend thousands on lighting modifiers if you try to buy them all.

Photo Editing

There are several options for photo editing software, one of the most recognizes is Adobe Lightroom, unfortunately it requires a subscription. On the free options is called Darktable.

Darktable is an open-source photography workflow application and raw developer. A virtual light table and darkroom for photographers. The internal architecture of darktable allows users to easily add modules for all sorts of image processing, from the very simple (crop, exposure, spot removal) to the most advanced (simulation of human night vision).

Suggestion

In order to keep images aligned, crop images to the same aspect ratio e.g. 4:3 (800×600 pixels), regardless of their dimensions, when the images are beside each other they will have the same length and height.
