Exercise: Concentrating Light

For this exercise, I had to create a cardboard snoot to place around my chosen light to direct it at specific areas. I rolled up some cardboard into a tube shape, and I was using a handheld LED light, I fitted this into the tube and then taped it in so that it was a complete handheld unit.

I then used the same stool, tripod and camera set up as I’d previously used for the contrast and shadow fill exercise. I created a small still life comprising of a TARDIS model and Dr Who figure, and then took a number of images directing the light in different areas
