Soft Light

The larger the light source’s radiating surface is, the softer the light is. Shadows are minimised and the illuminated area is illuminated evenly. This lighting situation occurs e.g. with overcast skies or illumination using a softbox in the studio. This type of illumination is often used in the area of portrait or beauty photography. Even distinctive faces appear more even and skin unevenness is smoothed out.
