One of the ways I’m try to increase my creativity is to explore unusual lighting situations. Julie was kind enough to let me experiment on her, and here is the result.
I didn’t want a normal silhouette (although I like those, too), so I tried to create a sort of line-art image. This is one light, on the opposite side and low. I didn’t measure the output, but it was blasting pretty strongly to create this rim lighting.
If I do this again, I’d like to even out the rim lighting a little bit and create more definition to her lips. But I’m pretty happy with this result.
Think differently. See differently. Light differently. Create art.
