    Does anyone here have experience shooting subjects against bright backgrounds (i.e. snow, sunlight etc.) using 12x double net to knock down by 1.5 stops?

    Shooting subjects against bright backgrounds can be tricky, but using a 12x double net to knock down the light by 1.5 stops can create interesting results!

    The net will help bring down the brightness of the background, reducing the contrast between your subject and the background. This can create a softer, more ethereal look. Depending on your lighting and camera settings, knocking down 1.5 stops might underexpose your subject if you don’t compensate. Adjust your aperture, shutter speed, or ISO accordingly.
