So, I shot the above images in my studio using a combination of strobe and tungsten lighting and the second curtain sync on my D-SLR. If you look closely, you'll see that some of the movement is completely stopped by the strobe flash, while other parts are merely slowed by the tungsten continuous light. I love this effect! The technique was a blast to experiment with. Anyway, stay tuned; I'm sure there will be more to come!!

I am currently taking a lighting class with the Art Institute. As such, at the beginning of the second week, we were asked to arrange a still life and experiment with lighting. I decided to go with this arrangement based on colors and texture. The intent with this specific image, as far as light, was to create a dramatic feel with side lighting, while also maintaining separation between subject and background. I used two strobes to get this combination, with one strobe pointed at the object from the direct left to create a soft side light, and one above and to the right aiming at both the object and background to create edging and separation.
