I’ve been working on the …
LIGHTING. I have been photographing the same subject, using different reflectors … different angles and a different proximity to the subject. I understand the concept, but making my photo’s look like I understand it is a whole new ballgame. I have also simplified my subject. A cleaner and clearer vision.
The lighting is ambient window light, with a southern exposure. This was taken around 2pm. I am holding a ‘ reflector ‘ 180 degrees from the light source…the sun, and about 1 1/2 feet away from my subject. Therefore , a softer light.
The second picture is a closer crop, I have my reflector 180 degrees from my light source, but lower…almost parallel to the subject. You can see the difference in the shadows.
Here are a few photo’s that I have taken for my course: The one on the left has no reflector, the middle one’s reflector is closer, therefore not much of a shadow, and the 3rd the reflector is further away. Can you see the difference ?
