Day 88 of 365
Bought a book yesterday titled Learning to Light: Easy and Affordable Techniques for the Photographer by Roger Hicks and Frances Schultz. It was written in 1998 so doesn't discuss what would be newer technology today but still has some great tips and tricks. Tricks like using tin foil to create a gobo for creating patterns and using basic desk lamps for lighting. Nice book for budget minded photographers.
Using some examples from the book I played around with bouncing light off a reflective surface to light this clove of garlic. It is sitting on a piece of clear plastic on black fabric.
