We were working in a studio setting for this project. This project taught us how to use lighting set ups and backdrops.
We also learnt the appropriate health and safety for the studio.
Rembrandt Lighting is a technique used in studio photography, it can be achieved by using only one single light and a reflector. It is named after a Dutch painter Rembrandt.
Rembrandt lighting is characterised by an illuminated triangle under the eye of the subject, on the less illuminated side of the face.
"when hendrik kerstens decided to dedicate himself entirely to photography in 1995, he turned to a model very near at hand: his daughter paula. he wanted to document all the important moments in her life, to ‘be there’, to capture something of the fleeting moments that fade from memory all too quickly. the inquisitive eye of the photographer plays an important part in the process: he sets out to catch a glimpse of his subject’s secret being and tries to
understand what it is he sees."
