Light Experiment 101

Short Talk: Damn, the description of "Recess Week" is really deceiving. Recess is suppose to be a time where kids get to play and enjoy their lunch boxes at the canteen. In university, Recess week basically means holiday for one to get out of the hectic routines and indulge in leisure/pleasure/pressure indulgences. However, in Singapore, Recess literally means accomplishing more work during the holidays than schooling days. :S WTFKNNCCB Raya is around the corner!! Sadly, we only get one day off. :S Le Sigh

The assignments, tutorials and Continual Assessments are killing me! But, in the midst of busy-ness, I still manage to do the things I like to do most and NO, it's definitely not fantasizing.

Remember in the previous post I posted about flash guns that summed up to S$85? I actually took some shots with them once I got back from the tech shop. Unfortunately, I was too lazy busy to post it up. xD

However, being "hard-working" again, I've decided to post up a lil' experiment of mine.

Photography basically means the art of light. The statement is short but the theory and understandings behind that statement is so profound that if you fall into the ditch of photography, you're worse than falling in love. *Okay, I have no idea of what I have just said".

Creativity is when one bends the rule and manipulate its artwork into another dimension/perspective yadda yadda yadda.

*I am typing these nonsense just to ensure that my post is not as short as my ordinary posts.*

In this shot, I used three flash guns.
- One being attached to the camera to trigger the other two slave flash guns.

- One slave flash gun being held right above the iPhone to give it a Halo-like effect.

- One slave flash gun being placed in front of the subject at the bottom right corner.

The downside of the flashes I bought is that both of them shoot at full power. This means that I have to play around with the distance/aperture in order to achieve the correct exposure and not screwing up the photo.

Similar to the previous shot, I used three flash guns.
- One being attached to the camera to trigger the other two slave flash guns.

- One slave flash gun being positioned at the subject's thigh area targeting the iPhone.

- One slave flash being fired from the top right corner of the picture.

Yesterday, my school club had a photoshoot for the main committee members. We rented 3 180W studio lights that came with stands and umbrellas for S$60 per day. I thought that it was inexpensive and a cost-saving way to have the corporate shoot.

I was one of the photographer for the photoshoot. Joining me was Ming Wei, a senior of mine who was very accommodating in helping us to get the job done efficiently.

Two studio lights were being used.

- One being positioned right behind the subject to create the hairlight*glowing hair* effect.

- One being fired 45 degrees and reflected by an umbrella at the top left corner of the photo.
