Light: Concentrating the light

Module ExercisesPosted by Mike Sun, March 17, 2013 12:11:00

An exercise in making a focused centre of light, in this case the lighting effect was created by using a cardboard tube taped to a flash gun, this provided the focus of light, with the flashgun held above the bottles, and aimed at the front bottle to provide the spot lighting. I also employed a modelling light with a red cover sheet projecting onto a white background, this illuminated the background which was located a foot or so behind the table upon which the bottles were sited.

A 6 second shutter speed was employed and the flash gun was hand fired twice to create the illumination effect of the front bottle.

I admit to photoshopping the tunnel of light into the image to enhance the effect -and give the idea of the 'light from above'
