Playing with light!
« on: October 11, 2012, 06:28:43 am »
I was bored one night and wanted to see what the best way would be to photograph furniture.

So I put my old Nikon D90 on a tripod and put her in Manual and took all shots at 30 seconds exposure at f11. For lighting, I used the built in flashlight in my Nokia C7 smartphone.

Here are the results...


Light direction: Waved around from the front of the chair...

Result: Terrible lighting, hard shadows and dark spots everywhere...






Light direction: From behind the chair...

Result: Dramatic mood but hardly fitting for this piece of furniture...






Light direction: From the top of the chair..

Result: Warm inviting light from the top brings out the best in this piece of furniture...

I only used one light source from the top, which I lightly waved around to highlight the surrounding area of the chair.
