Shadow Edges

About this tutorial

There are three lighting tones that typically show form in a photograph – the diffused highlight, specular highlight and shadow. There are also two areas where these tones blend into each other, typically referred to as the specular edge and the shadow edge. This tutorial looks specifically at the shadow edge, which can be a key indicator of the light quality on an image (whether it is soft light or hard light), but it is also affected by other aspects of the image.
