Exercise 11: Part 3.


For this part of the exercise the instructions were to lifts the light to be pointing down at a 45 degree angle.

In doing this we can see that the light is casting a compact shadow at the base and around the neck of the vase.  This gives a more 3 D effect to the jug.

I prefer  image 2, the diffused version as the shadow cast under the handle in Image 1 is unsightly, However I like the makings of the ‘fall off’ in image 1. It is the first time I have achieved this and always wondered how it was done!

Concluding the 3 parts to this exercise:

I have found this exercise extremely beneficial in learning about photographic lighting and how we can manipulate it to give form, shape and depth.  This exercise will stand me in good stead for the impending assignment.
