Available Light

This shot was taken on assignment for my Product Lighting class. Using only available light (daylight) and light modifiers (fill cards/white boards/ etc.) we were assigned to light an object of our choosing, something with texture and form. I chose to use a hat, for obvious reasons, and side lit or rake the light across the surface of the hat, to show the texture of the material, as well as create a nice transition from highlight-to-shadow.

One thought on “Available Light

  1. I like the hat, but I would have had a little more fill light on the back side of the hat so that the pinstripes really popped.
