In last Monday’s class, we learned about lighting; for this week, we must produce some images with any one of the techniques we learned. Of course, the first thing I did was to head to YouTube! There are some really excellent photographers out there, but my favorite I came across was Jim Talkington, of Prophotolife.com. He has about 33 videos online, both on the ‘tube and on his website. I intend to study all his videos – I really learned a lot, even if my own photos do not show too much talent.
Below, are two of my favorites of the lighting study – a wine glass, and a paperweight. On Flickr you can see the entire studies.
