Lighting Angles

June 23, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
Here is some images that show how light occurs on a subject at various angles.  This is using one Canon 430 EX II flash on ETTL mode.  My camera is set to 1/4000, ISO 100, F1.8.  I am using a Canon 50mm F1.8 lens on my Canon XS.

First the photos are around the subject, in this case my son's toy Scout.  I also did it from 0 degrees elevation up to 90 degrees.  Each number around the circle are the lighting positions, the black dot is the subject, and the camera was stationary at the 0 degree mark.  Each photo the light was right around 5 ft. from the subject.  The camera was straight in front and 3 ft from the subject.

As you can see, the angle in which the light fell on the subject, was most interesting.

As I precede with these, I will be adding light modifiers and more flashes (if I rent or find someone to borrow from).
