This Week’s Challenge: #PRTV_sidelightSide lighting your subject this week was a bit more of a technical challenge but you guys came up with some neat shots. It's something that seems simple but gets a bit tricky knowing where shadows will fall, how light plays with your subject, and adding a lot of contrast / drama to a shot. Nice job and see you all next week for #PRTV_retro.Next Week’s Challenge: #PRTV_retroFind out more about upcoming challenges and past winners at photorec.tv/prtv.You can follow Photorec.TV on Instagram at @Photorec.tv and the team:
Clean, sharp and perfectly side lit
A nicely balanced exposure with some tension as the viewer gazes out of the frame
Harsh shadows done well!
Plenty of contrast with this B&W. Important for side lit portraits, you can still see the tiny catchlight in the eye to give it a nice depth.
Lighting is important with macro shots, your subject is so tiny, and I love the bokeh in this shot by Cara.
The lighting works great with architecture giving them a nice depth with the strong shadows on the features of this building.
