Week 4 in class lighting

This photo is an exceptional example of loop lighting. You can see the curve of the nose going on the side of her cheek creating a loop. However I dont think that the lighting was placed high enough above her head so unfortunately the rest of her nose shadow slightly goes across her cheek as well.

This is a good example of split lighting because the split contrast of light clearly goes across and down her face.

This is a good example of Rembrandt lighting since the triangle shows up in lighting on the right side of her face against her nose.

This photo is a good example of broad lighting since the light is very strong on the side of her face that is towards the camera while the side of her face opposed to the camera has a heavy shadow contrast.

This is a good example of short lighting since the side of her face that is opposed to the camera is gently highlighted by light which makes it short. The side of her face that is towards the camera is taken over by a contrasting dominant shadow.


ClassWork3 Lighting Styles



The triangle of light on the cheek is wider than the eye, but photographers generally refer to any light pattern with that triangle of light 
Loop Light 

This creates a nose shadow that 'loops' down at an angle onto their cheek.Split Light 

This form of lighting is when half of the subject’s face is lit, while the other half is left darkBroad light 

is just the opposite of Short light. In the Broad Light setup, The side that is getting the most light is the side turning towards the camera.Short Light 

refers to when the main light illuminates the side of the face that is turned away from the camera.

Learning Log #2

I chose this image mainly because of the way the yellow color of the dinosaur contrasted the rest of the image, which is also why i decided to focus the camera lenses on that part of the setup, and blur out the rest. I had taken a few pictures from a front angle, so I decided to switch it up a bit and take a picture from above to see how it would look since there was minimal lighting on that side of the setup. In my opinion, it came out pretty good.
