Title: Back to Reality
Chapter 3 Assignment 2 for the NYIP.edu Professional Photographer course:
Set up a simple still-life indoors or outdoors on the floor, the ground, or a table. Your subject might be a vase of flowers or a bowl of fruit or any similar grouping of small objects.
Shoot this still-life in 45° sidelight. Outdoors, this can be sunlight. Indoors, you can use a single incandescent bulb or strobe light. A common mistake indoors is to place the still-life so close to the background wall that a harsh shadow is seen outlining it. Rather, position your subject far enough from the background to either eliminate the wall shadow or soften it. You should introduce a fill light using a reflector or fill card.
