Tita Duties 101: Lighting Exercises with Jas, and Eianne

My two very cute nieces, Jasmine, and Eianne really helped me a lot accomplish my photography requirement today. They’re so patient, and obedient which had made my job done a lot easier.

My photography buddy, Vina, and I associated each other to do the task. We built a quick studio with black shawl stuck on the wall as our background, and a stool for our subjects to sit on, then voila!

As photography students like we are, it’s kind of “risky”, yet fun and intriguing to improvise instruments to do the perfect lighting. You have to be wise and resourceful when you have nothing but a flashlight, an empty box, and a little experience – all in your hand.

Well, still incomparable with the works of professional photographers with great-arse studio, but I thought we nailed it. Didn’t we?

Here's Jas, the elder sister of Eianne. She really is a model, but this time she's not giving out her best shot, because (first) she's shy, and (second) she just had her central incisors chipped yesterday.

So, here’s my BUTTERFLY lighting effect. I don’t think, I really nailed it, but I had just fun anyway.

Another Jaz's :)

Here’s my LOOP lighting effect. What I understood about making this one is, you have to create two shadows behind the subject. Too bad my background is too dark, and my light is too soft. I wondered why it didn’t look perf as it used in my camera.

Here's Eianne, Jaz's younger sis. They looked so cute together that I yearned for having an elder sis.

Seemed I raped the aperture or something, but this is my favorite shot. I thought I nailed this REMBRANDT lighting; my subject is too shy, just like her ate.

Eianne is more obedient than her sister is. Every photo is a perfect shot. It's like she knows where to look; too bad she's shy.

Sorry! I raped it again. It looked as if I didn’t really used any lighting effect or something, but I hope you’d still appreciate it. I’m proud of my work, and I nailed this SPLIT lighting effect…

Lessons learned

…do not play much with the aperture, because in photography, what you see isn’t always what you will get.
