Sim­ple Move­ments

Photo Plus - - Canon Skills -

us­ing a sin­gle light source, we can change the shape of the sub­ject’s face quite dra­mat­i­cally. All we’ve done, how­ever, is move the light – in this case a grid­ded beauty dish on a Bowens Gem­ini 500 – from cam­era right to cam­era left. If we didn’t want to move the light, or if we were shoot­ing with a light that we couldn’t move (such as nat­u­ral light), we could ask the sub­ject to turn her head in­stead. Both po­si­tions pro­duce pleas­ing re­sults, with a Rem­brandt light­ing pat­tern in each im­age, but the sub­ject’s face in the top (broad-lit) photo ap­pears much fuller, while in the bot­tom (short-lit) photo it seems much slim­mer.
