A shot is as great as its lighting. Find a setting with multiple light sources—a bright light near the camera; a filling, ambient light that softens shadows; and a back light behind the subject that adds depth. Windows on sunny days often act as perfect on-the-go key and fill lights. Just turn on a lamp behind your subject for depth.

AT&T Digital Life lets you keep tabs on your home wherever life takes you
Tablets can help you master the kitchen. But wouldn’t it be great if you could use your tablet to control the rest of the house too, whether you’re there or not? Now you can, thanks to AT&T Digital Life, the home-automation/security system that brings “Future World” convenience to your fingertips.
Lock and unlock the doors. Adjust the thermostat. Turn on the living room lights—Digital Life lets you control all these and more, remotely from your tablet, smartphone or computer.
Digital Life is also the nerve center of a robust home-safety and -security system. It can monitor smoke, CO and water-leak settings and sends you alerts (by phone, email or text) if necessary. It also lets you watch live, round-the-clock camera feeds of your home and will notify the proper authorities in the event of a break-in or other potential trouble.
Digital Life is currently available in more than 20 markets, with plans to extend to 50 cities by the end of the year. For more information, go to att.com/digitallife.
