6862 MarcoCiavolino Week 26 Flashlight Post

A Better Light

Smoking is a practice that has been with us forever. We now know it kills. Yet on it goes. Let us choose a better light to brighten the world.

Behind the Scenes

I bought a pack of diagnostic penlights and then made a custom label. I kept the lights on with masking tape. Camera on a tripod, my wife was the light picker.

Without some source of light, a photo is just black space. This week, we are going to focus on possibly the most important aspect of photography - the light! Light not only allows our cameras to 'see' but also helps us to add atmosphere or tell a story with our photos. With light, we can change the mood of a photo. Learning to manipulate your lighting will open a new world in your photography! To make things a bit more interesting, your light source this week must involve a flashlight. You can use any type of flashlight, from a penlight to a headlamp, a multi light, or even the built-in flashlight on your cell phone (or use an app for colored light! Or 2 phones!) You may choose to use the flashlight to light a subject of your choice, use the flashlight to create a light painting type of photo, or use the flashlight as a prop AND light source in the photo itself. The flashlight also does not necessarily have to be the only light source. However, we highly recommend that you grab a flashlight, check the batteries, and go have fun! NOTE: This does not at all require you to be outdoors, in fact you will have more success indoors in a dark room. Happy shooting :)
