Light Reading

This week’s assignment for class is to use light to create a mood.  This is one of my images so far.  It still needs a little work, so I hope I get time (and kids with a bit of patience) to reshoot it again tonight.


  1. Oh wow! I REALLY like this shot. I'm gonna try this with one of my boys sometime. You did great with the lighting in my humble opinion! :)

  2. Thank you Katrina! The light was streaming through the thin window to the side of the front door. I made him sit next to it so it hit the left of this face. I hung a table cloth behind him and got his brother to shine a torch onto the pages which reflected the light onto his face. There wasn't quite enough light, so I followed a tip from my lecturer: place tinfoil on the pages to reflect more light. Good luck with your shot!
