Todays task was about the use of light specifically natural lighting. We looked at how it affects the subject in a photograph and the viewers response to the photo. We also looked at what settings should be used in certain lighting. It is important to understand the lighting as this is vital in getting the right light balance giving you the best possible image.
We were then given a task to go out and experiment with different settings using natural light. The direction of light such as back light, side light and front light was key to our setup for our photos.
Below are a series of images that I took demonstrating back lighting side lighting and front lighting.
During the task I found it difficult to get a strong photograph outside because the weather wasnt great therefore the lighting was poor however indoors it seemed to work better. I am content with the results although I would like to try the shoot again in better lighting conditions to see the difference.
