WeekEight – Let there be light

19 – 25 Feb ’12

Not really a portrait this week.  More like lighting practice.  I figured it was time to get serious about learning how to use my new light.  I’ve been reading Strobist, and this is the result of the first exercises  from Lighting 102.

Lighting experiment 1

Lighting experiment 2

Lighting experiment 3

Lighting experiment 4

This was a great experiment to illustrate the difference that lighting position makes.  Though I’ve been studying lighting in theory, it’s good to start making pictures in practice to appreciate how light works.

With thanks to my model for her patience.  Good on ya, Cat!
