I tried to light the two sides of my face.
Your head is like an orange on a toothpick.
Nice lighting though.
good lighting.....what do you use?
thx guys. I really want to make a gird to control the light. I wanted to light only the tips of my face, but it spilled all the way into my whole face
flash, I think?
flash photography perhaps?
well, the the flash to camera right is setup in wat would be called 'rembrant' lighting, because it casts the shadow of your nose across your cheek, but lights your eye, creating a triangle of light.
and the flash to camera left would be setup for 'split' lighting, because it is setup to only light one side of your face.
By YOUR powers combined, they are Captain Planet lighting!
two softboxes and one ceiling bounce for fill
Do you have examples of said lighting technique? I can only picture a lot of shadows and a rimlight.
thats split lighting, without the 2nd light that whole half of his face wouldn't be lit. Rembrandt would need to be brought more towards the camera, and would look better with the light raised up more
ya, this was what i was trying to do, but failed
is this the type of lighting you are talking about? i used two strobes with two large silver reflectors...you can figure out the rest
Well its easy to see why. Notice how in the image you wanted, the person is facing the camera head on. You posed tilted to the camera, therefor light spilled on more on one side of your face then the other. Also there is a background light in that one.
Besides the image has more then three lights in it. I would say 4, one background, one from each side, and one large lightsround from above the camera. hence the shadow under the hat and the sleeves. Also teh lights from teh sides probably have flags or grid spots because notice how strong the rim is on the face, but is very faint on the arms
