365 Challenge - Day 291

Evening all,

     So I wanted to try out some different lighting angles, get used to how it effects faces etc., learn mote and all that. Sadly, my normal model (the fiancee) isn't here, so you have to put up with my face!

I guess it is good to be the other side of the camera once in a while.

This is with flash straight on, very flat, not nice really. Causes lot's of shadows under my chin.

Flash was off to my left hand side, pointing down slightly. Better, very moody. The eyes are quite dead as there is no light in them. 

Flash still off to my left, on to my face, straight on. I like the half shadow, and there is light in the eye too.

Again, flash to the left, more of a 45degree angle to my face, trying to light more of my face up. Right eye still has no light in it though

Flash held up high pointing down. Large shadows under the eyes, and the mouth (never knew my mouth protruded so far?!)

Flash off to my right side this time, another half shadow.

I think my favorite is number 3. What do you think the best lighting angle is? Let me know in the comments!

Much love



  1. Actually I like number 5... Reminds me of some old pictures of I think it was Sting?

    1. Sting! Well first time I have heard that, thanks though Doug!
