El reloj de Gerald Millerson

El reloj de Gerald Millerson En esta práctica comprobaremos cómo funciona el esquema de iluminación de Gerald Millerson, en el que se utilizan las horas de un reloj para situar las fuentes de luz a la hora de fotografiar a un sujeto. El esquema tiene dos ejes, como si de dos relojes se trataran, que nos indican no solo la posición de la fuente de luz en el plano horizontal, sino también la inclinación que este tendría que tener en el plano vertical con respecto al sujeto. En ambas practicas he utilizado un flash con una pantalla difusora accionado por un disparador de clabe, sobre un sujeto situado en un estudio con fondo negro y sin ninguna fuente de luz mas que el foco principal. En esta práctica hemos realizado una vuelta completa en el eje horizontal mientras fotografiábamos a un sujeto. No había inclinación respecto al sujeto ya que hemos tomado como referencia las 3 h en el plano vertical. A continuacion, para continuar con la practica hemos realizado una vuelta completa de nuevo, pero esta vez inclinando la fuente de luz un poco en el plano vertical, tomando como referencia las 1 h. Como podemos observar en el segundo caso la luz resultante es algo mas picada, lanzando las sombras hacia abajo con una inclinacion similar a la del foco sobre el sujeto.

Bounce + Accessory Comparisons

I've been reading photographers' discussions on various external flash accessories. These are updated comparisons for 6th edition of my textbook, "Photojournalism: The Professionals' Approach." For these tests, the subject remained at the same distance from the background, and the flash was located nine feet from the subject. Pictures in the left column were taken inside. Those in the right column were taken outside. From top to bottom, the Indoor/Outdoor comparisons are for: Direct Flash Bouncing the flash off a ceiling Fong diffuser Lumiquest Omnidome Through a softbox Off an umbrella Through an umbrella Outdoors or in a large ballroom or gymnasium, all the accessories work less well at softening shadows. Inside, light scatters off many surfaces. Outside, the scattered light rays coming from the accessories have few surfaces to bounce off. Notice, in the outdoor series, that the shadow behind the model is darker in almost each situation. All accessories are subject to the same laws of physics.

Getting The Most Out Of Your Modifiers

Artificial lighting can be overwhelming, there are thousands of options to modify one single light source and there are dozens of companies that claim they have the best product and best bang for your buck. Regardless, photography equipment is expensive and I know I'd rather not waste money on a gimmick product when the same result could be achieved with just the right strobe placement or accessory. With carpentry there is an right way and wrong way to do things. The right way usually involves a number of different tools.
