Photgraphic Technique Challenge - Single Light Source

by Larry Nelson August. 03, 2012 3013 views

I didn't read the challenge very well - thus no “Dutch angle” or any other angle. Changing the placement of the single light source was interesting nontheless.

Light source high in front.

Light source left darkens the far side of the man's face.

Light source directly above darkens the man's face - looks sinister!

Light source on opposite side gives a little light to the man's face, but illuminates the child's face wonderfully!

Because this is such a special statue to us, I love them all, but my favorite is the last one with the light on the child's upturned face. Beautiful set, Hon.

It is interesting how moving the light source changed the way they looked... no idea what Dutch Angle is either!

Nice sculpture you used for the light example .
The first thing I was taught at my art class was where the light comes from and the shadows it creates .

I do like the different look each light angle gives for the shots!
