[ tip ] The Direction of Light

Found out some of the notes that given by our lecturer before about the direction of light. I think it might be useful to take a look at it cos it's light that enables film to capture colors, details, shapes and textures. The way light changes will create a different mood of the pic too. Hope it's useful for you.



p/s: hopefully the img can be show out. or else click here

Front Light
  • comes fromt he position of the camera
  • the illumination is even and bright, causes no shadow, subject appear 'flat'


Off Center
  • comes beside the front light, about 10-15º angle of view
  • use as a sub-light to reduce shadows


Cross Light
  • 45º angle of view
  • as a main illumination
  • it is even and natural, can catch the detail texture of the object
  • to photograph the picture from book, using a pair of 45º cross light to obtain the best effect


Side Light
  • about 80-90º angle of view
  • can clearly distinguish the highlight and the shadow
  • emphasize solidness/depthness
  • is the suitable illumination for shooting statuette


Side Rear
  • around 110º angle of view
  • this angle of illumination is use to separate the object and the background


Rim
  • 45º angle of view from the rear light
  • produce low key atmosphere
  • also call Renblandt lighting


Rear Light
  • is the suitable illumination for shooting transparent or semi transparent objects and those have a complicated outline objects
