Small Changes Affect Photos in a Big Way

A quick photo shoot with one of the developers I spend a lot of time with yielded an interestingly washed out photo. The original shot is obvious from the set below, it’s in full colour and trying to focus on subject’s iris; while casting harsh contrasting symmetrical light.

Two LED flood lights were used to light the subjects face on either side, down from a 50 degree angle. These lights provided heavy shadows around the eyes, and mouth while leaving the nose otherwise washed out. In order to bring out the details hidden in the shadows, a lens mounted ring flash was used.

I'm a web and graphic designer with a special interest in Wordpress development. I'm splitting my time between Toronto firm work, and Niagara freelance - the best of both worlds.

To say I'm a man of many hats is an understatement. My friends and family will be the first to say there isn't much I can't do, and do well. Don't be surprised to find me writing about some offbeat or otherwise unexpected subjects.
