Assignment 24: lighting techniques research due Feb 4

Post  Admin on Sun Jan 30, 2011 10:05 pm

(due date changed due to school closings)

Edited for clarity:
Research a specific lighting technique. Create a diagram of how to set up the lighting scheme, and find two examples of it online. These will get posted into the assignment thread. You'll include:

- a description of your lighting method - in your own words, not cut and pasted from the internet.
- use at least two photography vocab terms in your description
- Your diagram. Another student should be able to help you upload an image to the forum.
- two examples from the internet of photos that use that technique.

Because we have all done silhouettes, you will need to select a different lighting set up.

Possible Resources:
http://www.alienbees.com/glossary.html
http://www.lowel.com/glossary.html

Grading rubric:
3 points total

1 points: at least two lighting vocabulary terms used in presentation
1 point: accurate diagram of lighting used in presentation
1 point: preparedness and clarity of presentation

In a followup assignment, you will be taking photos using the lighting technique you researched.

Backlight is when the main light(Also known as the key light) is placed somewhere behind the subject.This normally causes high contrast in the light levels in the picture. This technique is known to cause lens flair.

Assignment 24: lighting techniques research due Feb 4

Post  VictoriaW on Tue Feb 08, 2011 3:02 pm

Directional Lighting is simply when different sources of light(natural light-sun,fill light,key light) are placed around the subject. When lighting is placed around the subject in different angles, it lights the object in numerous ways. The natural light will give the subject the most light because it is placed behind the object.

Bounce lighting is when you bounce your light source off a wall or an object onto the main subject. Creating softer shadows.

the fill light is meant to fill in the shadows that the main light gives off of the subject. making the scene as
bright as it can be.

Bounce lighting is lighting that bounces off of a surface or object (wall, umbrella, mirror) in order to surround the subject with light and create fewer harsh shaddows.

Split Lighting Technique

Post  Christina M. on Wed Feb 09, 2011 8:54 am

Split lighting is a portrait lighting technique. It is used to create a more dramatic effect. The way that the light is set up makes it so that one side of the subjects face is illuminated and the other side is left in shadow. The subject is faces directly towards the camera and the key light, which is the main/brightest light, is directly 90% from the camera on either side of the subject A hair or a back light can also be placed behind the subject to separate him, her, or it from the background.

Bounce lighting is when the subject is placed in front of a dark backdrop, while a source of light from the side bounces off and shows the subjects features.

Texture lighting is simply putting the fill light ninety degrees of the object that you are taking a photo of, you will then focus your camera lens. One of the key elements to getting a great texture lighting is putting your camera one inch away from the object.

Bounced light is basically, when you are bouncing the light, it disperses over a lager area which creates soft or diffused light.

Back light is a lighting technique where he light source is above, behind, and slightly to the side of the subject. The light is high enough or positioned in a way to cut lens flare. It is often confused with background lighting, where the background of the subject is illuminated,and not the subject itself.

Manual Exposure

Post  TravisB on Wed Feb 16, 2011 8:21 am

Manual Exposure: By setting your camera to manual exposure setting, change your shutter speed to something much lower than what you would usually use and by having the right lighting and the right amount of time the lens is open you can come out with lights,people, ect. that drag across the exposure in a really awesome way.

Three point lighting is pretty self explanatory, to create it you need to set up three different lighting schemes key lighting, fill lighting, and back lighting. To truly see the difference they should be set up on at a time. The key lighting is the strongest light and has the biggest influence on the outcome of the picture. It is best to select an area with a vast amount of ambient light. The fill lighting is places on the opposite side of the key light, so it fills the shadows produced by the key light. The back lighting is placed behind the object to light it from the rear. This is to provide definition and subtle highlights around the subjects outline.

Butterfly lighting is a method of lighting generally used in modeling photo-shoots. It makes the model appear more attractive.

Instead of the light being at the same level it's above the model.

Glare is light reflected toward the camera from shiny or relativley matte surface. Glare lighting is one of the most useful ways to add life to a picture. You can not make a glare off bare metal or dulling-type spray or bald heads.

Bouce Lighting

Post  ZakB on Wed Feb 23, 2011 10:15 am

Bounce lighting is a type of lighting that bounces off of a reflective surface (such as a wall, ceiling, or mirror) in order to surround the subject that you are shooting with light and create a softly light photo with delicate soft shadows.
