Broad light

Uploaded: July 24, 2005

Description

Umbrella at 45 degrees left, hairlight on boom set to 3:1 ratio to the key light, pointed at the back of her head and shoulders. Polyboard brought closer, to about 2 feet away to the right. F16 at 125th. Petra, the sitter, has an oval-ish face, so I was worried about the broad light, as it seems to accentuate a wide or round face.

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


 

The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
