Studio Portrait: Standing in a studio to take photos instead of having photos being taken of me- definitely a first time experience! I was hesitant at first to see all the different lighting equipment that could be used to take different types of professional photography. I became comfortable very quickly in taking a shot; I hardly ever had to retake a shot! This simple environment allowed me to play with light patterns on the face of my fellow students. I was able to take split, loop, Rembrandt, and butterfly lighting photographs. With split, you can see the obvious and not so obvious darkness on one side of the face; this one I did have to adjust for more moodiness in the photo. For loop, angling the light to create the perfect small loop to the side of the nose was tricky. Rembrandt seemed hard to take, but getting that triangle on the cheek was simple with the right lighting pattern. The glamourous butterfly lighting looked so perfectly dramatic with his head titled slightly down.
