Project One: The Fruits of Our Labor (Part One)

The students did an amazing job with their first class working with studio lighting techniques. They were asked to take the first two images in a series of five images. One image should use lighting to document the object they are photographing with a solid range of values from light to dark, preferably no part of the image will be over or under exposed. The second photo uses lighting to create a close-up image of the surface texture of the student's object.

At the end of class the students were asked if there was anything they had discovered about photography. Daniel said, "Lighting. It is everything." All the students agreed that a tripod makes a huge difference in being able to set up and frame a shot.
