  • I'll use your example to better explain my question, because I don't think you've answered it. if you took a picture of a two-inch 100 watt bulb at ten meters, and another picture of a 20-inch 1000 watt bulb from ten meters, the bulbs will look equ…
  • Allen did answer my first question at the beginning of the thread. he said that the light size does not affect the falloff. I understood his reasoning as follows: no matter how large the light is, if there is sufficient light hitting the subject, th…
  • Allen, you answered my question. thank you. according to you, if I'm shooting a circle of dancers with on camera flash, trying to expose for the bride in the center without severely over exposing the people near me and under exposing the people far…

  • Stephen, I read the link, which gave me a deeper understanding of the inverse square law, but did not directly address My question. are you trying to say that when you spread the light source (irradiance) out by making it larger, you weaken the lig…
  • I will read your link soon. Naftoli, Stephen is saying that you only increase the size, such as by using a bigger flash. not by introducing a light modifier. so he will still get the same exposure. in my scenario above, I had to increase the power b…
