Exercise 4.3

Capture ‘the beauty of artificial light’ in a short sequence of shots (‘beauty’ is, of course, a subjective term). The correct white balance setting will be important; this can get tricky –but interesting – if there are mixed light sources of different colour temperatures in the same shot. You can shoot indoors or outside but the light should be ambient rather than camera flash. Add the sequence to your learning log. In your notes try to describe the difference in the quality of light from the daylight shots in Exercise 4.2.


All the images are taken with different light sources halogen, neon, fluorescent, led, standard bulb, candles and headlamps. The first thing I noticed about the ambient light is you can control its source point as well as its intensity depending on the desired effect you require.
